Chain Saw Sharpener Ordered from China

Updated on July 8, 2020

Chain Saw Sharpener

It all began one day in May, on Facebook. For some reason, the advertising was for a device that clamps onto the end of your chainsaw and after you close it on your chainsaw, you press the end of it onto a stable object and the inner dynamics of this device is supposed to sharpen your chain. You know, without removing it.

I bit. I ordered one for my husband. He thought it looked like an amazing device. He sharpens his blades himself, using a handheld spinning sharpener. It's electric. It takes a few minutes to sharpen his chain, since you do each link and blade one at a time. It's time consuming, but the chain will again cut logs into manageable pieces.

The beauty of the new tool is that you don't have to find a source of electricity, you are supposed to be able to just clamp it on your chainsaw and accelerate the chain saw for a few minutes and your dull chain is supposed to be a sharp chain.

Does this sound too good to be true?

What I did not realize, when I initially ordered this device, is that it was coming from China.

Now that I know, I am under the hurry up and wait sequence of my order. I received a tracking number through a tracking company. It's been interesting watching the progression of my order through China, and then, through customs. Then, the slow trek across the United States. First it was in Arizona. Then, it went to Illinois.

It was stuck in customs for a while. Actually, the tracking claims that it's been in transit 41 days. I'm somewhat relieved to know that the current location is a mere 10 hours away by car.

Confirmation of my Order Came Almost Immediately Plus Tracking

Since it is taking a long time to get my tool, and since my charge card was charged almost two months ago, and I haven't received it yet, I'm looking forward to seeing what I'm receiving.

It was $29, and I have time to wait, I guess.

There is Negativity Online About this Tool

Wish me luck!

Note to Self: PowerSharp System Only Works with Their Own Chain

I got my sharpener today. It's July 8. It came from an address in California. Which is vaguely odd since, according to the tracking, it was never in California.

It was in my mailbox, so it came through the postal service, not
