the first thing I will tell you is that you do not need to buy the sharpener from Stihl. There are many different ...very good sharpeners that can be purchased from many different places. Almost any good chainsaw repair shop can order a good sharpener for you.

 

Also they can be ordered online from many different sites...including http://www.amazon.com/ http://www.stens.com/ http://www.oldchainsawparts.com/ You will have to contact them by e-mail at [email protected] and they will let you know what they can add to their website fro you to buy....and many others.

 

Here are some good examples

http://www.amazon.com/Oregon-511AX-Chain-Grinder-Sharpener/dp/B0000AX0CY/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1276904045&sr=8-8

 

http://www.amazon.com/Oregon-108181-Chain-Grinder-Sharpener/dp/B001HK1ZXI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1276904212&sr=8-2

 

 

Here is a very inexpensice one that might work.

 

http://www.amazon.com/Northern-Industrial-Bench-Wall-Mount-Sharpener/dp/B000I6DNAU/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1276904045&sr=8-7

 

 

Feel free to contact me here at this question anytime ...even after you hit the "ACCEPT" button ...and I will try to help further.

 

Please click "ACCEPT" or I won't get paid.

You may also consider sending a bonus if I have been helpful, Please leave POSITIVE feedback for me as this is how I'm rated. Remember, a neutral is nearly as bad as a negative. If not satisfied, contact me and I will make it right. Thanks
