    It could have a lot of "miles" on it, being that old...

    You are absolutely correct...I talked to the guy I got the usg from and he said he hadn't used it but a few times.....the CBN wheels are deceptive to look at....I have some that have done 50 chains+ or- and they look like they are brand new still....

    I am goin to call the the company and talk with the guy....I would love to have a wheel for 3/8 chain....the wheel I have from US diamond is just a hair bigger than my 1/8 diamond wheel company CBN wheel....so it's just a little small for 3/8 chain, IMO....you can make it work as I have done, just have to be aware of the cutter profile...

    Thanks a lot, and most importantly it cuts great.......All these guys on here helped me a lot....also another guy I get saws from locally has helped me tremendously, hell he walked me right into a STELLAR deal on a Stihl USG..!!

    I like to file and I like to grind.....depending on the situation, they both have their time to shine!!!!

    I learned that taking to much out of the gullet can cause a few issues....the chain can be grabby, dull faster, and be harder in the saw in general....

    So I take out just enough gullet for chip clearance....

    I can't remember who, but someone asked me to post a phot of a chain that is getting close to the end of its life, that had been sharpened with a grinder its whole life....well here it is....

    This is a Stihl RM 3/8 chain....yes, it's a safety chain...yes, is you know how to file/grind properly you can get these chains to cut just fine....I get them in lots of "non-runners", and I put them on saws I rebuild and sell, and keep a few for stumping or wood that may contain metal....

    The last 2-photos were taken at a slight angle to show that the cutter profile is the same as a file....if you put a file into the cutter face at a 30-degree angle, it fits the hand-file perfectly....

    Grind as you file, file as you grind.... @Philbert

    Not seen that brand / model before. But if it works, and it's not too much money, . . . Go take a look!

    I was intrigued by it, but they want $350 for it. That is too much for my curiosity.

    There is some old Foley sharpening equipment out there that might be a reasonable investment if you are setting up a small business, sharpening circular saws and other types of blades, etc. But if just sharpening saw chains, that money would be better spent on buying one of the current Oregon grinders new.

    I saw one like it on an old "Roadrunner" cartoon!! The coyote didn't fare too well.
