The Chain Shark can be attached to either a Oregon Model 620-120 or Tecomec Professional "Super Jolly" Chainsaw Saw Chain Grinder both hydraulic assist grinders. When the grinder head is lowered, the chain is automatically clamped and securely held in three places, reducing steps required and allowing the operator to index chain faster. Sharpening time can be reduced as much as half. The grinders have special tilting vise pivots to provide additional 10 degree horizontal angle for sharpening chisel chain. It has a self-centering knob as seen in the pictures, simply rotate the knob to dial-in the correct pitch, this feature ensures that the chain is always aligned in perfect center with the vise turning axis.
The Chain Shark was invented by Tony Enders from Laona Wisconsin. Tony has been a part of the forestry industry for many years and has sharpened thousands of chains. After sharpening many chains he realized that after each one the quality sharpen would change as the arm became fatigued. While working in his garage he decided there had to be an easier way to sharpen chains that would eliminate that human error and produce a consistent quality sharpen every time. After months of trial and error he perfected his system making this a complex yet simple system of sharpening chains to a like new condition everytime.
