    Just make the stump higher, Gerry. Trees get thinner towards the top, you could be the first to sharpen a saw at 300 feet

    Nice. The only thing that setup is missing is a seat, lol. I like to sit behind my saw and come over the top to file. In the woods without my custom filing bench, I take a short log stood on end for a seat and another about 6" taller with a kerf cut in it to hold the saw. Put them right next to each other, jump on and file away. It all works.

    I will second the GB bars, they are very good for the money.

    Seems like a lot of trouble just to sharpen a saw. I just set it on the ground and sit on the motor for big saws, or kneel behind it for the little ones. Just git er done and get back to work. But I guess if you want to milk it out and take a long break, then by all means do some chainsaw carving or whatever to make a fancy stand. :roll:


    j/k I think it's cute, really.

    It takes me less than 30 seconds to make the stand. At my age and after 3 times kneesurgery it would take me a lot longer to get up after sitting on the saw
