    I purchased it for $29 without a coupon but did purchase a year warranty for $5. You don't always need a coupon for the $29 deal.

    That is true, the store sales and online sales will rotate to the same thing as a coupon sale every few months, but last month the store sale was $39.99, so i cut my "special subscriber" coupon off the January flyer that made it $29.99.

    Thanks for the coupon wetwood. I just placed an order for one including one year replacement warranty. Looking forward to not having to sharpen strictly with hand files every time.

    Well, I picked one up and used it yesterday. I guess you get what you pay for as I'm not real impressed with it or I'm just not using it correctly. I used a recently shop sharpened Stihl .325 oilomatic chain to set up the angle. Then took a same type chain that needed work and adjusted the depth. Can't seem to get the entire cutting edge to make contact. After sharpening by hand using a file the teeth have a much cleaner looking surface than the grinder gives me. I have tried a couple of angles but just can't seem to get good results.

    Do you have the right sized wheel for your chain?

    You know, after I posted that same thought/question popped into my head. I'll have to look and see but I suspect it's not.
