    Just got a Oregon 88-021 from Travis at Landscapesupply with the 1.5 HP moter and 12'' stone.Been geting a friend to sharpen blades with a bench grinder.I was amazed at how far off the angle was with only 2 times being sharpened.There is no way that a angle grinder or bench grinder can compare with a commercial type grinder.I remember reading where some of you guys do this and think it works as way...don't kid yourself!Also useing a nail to can't balance a blade with a nail holding a blade at top of the hole.Center it with a Magna balancer.If you're going to do it/ DO IT RIGHT! I could not believe bow out of balance the blades were.But a little time with the OREGON grinder I was able to get the blades back on track.Only regret....should have bought it sooner.Thanks Travis :waving:
