Tésa has a unique ability to be frugal, even when she doesn’t intend to. We recently were sent thePowerSharp Chainsaw Sharperner from Oregon Chain for review. They also sent a chainsaw so we had something to sharpen. I was excited to find that this is such a simple and easy way to perform what is generally a VERY monotonous task – sharpening the chain of your chainsaw.
Now to get back to my frugal comment. Compliments of Oregon Chain, Tésa was able to get the POWERsharp for her loving husband and wonderful father of her children (ME!) for Father’s Day. This not only knocked out a present for me, but it just so happened that we were visiting her parents on Father’s Day, and would you believe, Mom and Dad had recently had a tree cut down and needed a son-in-law to cut up and split the wood into fire pit size logs.
Fortunately for me the splitting is yet to be done, and I am hoping my brother in law makes a trip to my Out-Laws In-Laws house before I get back up there to do the splitting.
As I was cutting up this mammoth tree (it will get bigger every time I tell the story) I had the opportunity to use the PowerSharp sharpener a couple of times. It is very simple and more importantly very safe. You simply clip it onto the chainsaw, the sharpener has metal posts that lock into the open holes at the front of the bar, and then you close it and lock it up.
Next, you fire up the chainsaw with the sharpener on it and push it against any solid and stable object such as the tree stump or a brick wall, and this pushes the sharpening stone against the blades and is hands down the easiest fastest and safest way to sharpen your chainsaw blades.
This is a perfect gift idea, but to all Husbands out there, be careful what you ask for, because you know Wifey may very well buy this gift for you with ulterior motives, like making you to work as opposed to watching the ballgame while enjoying your favorite beverage.
Honestly, I can say that thanks to the PowerSharp Chainsaw Sharpener, I was looking for the next project, or just something else to cut down, but don’t tell Tired Mom Tésa or she may find another project for me.
