    that was 30.00 for a little over an hour the chains sharpening jig not getting me rich but I have done over 500.00 just in the last 6 months (at 5.00-7.00 bucks a chain) helps keep gas and oil in the saw's and truck...

    smokinjay,
    Sweet deal. The hardware in town charges $4/chain. Well, that was last year anyway.
