Chain holder
« on: March 02, 2010, 07:24:34 PM »

I don't know about you... but I got a bunch of chain saw chains.  I have a local Northern Tools outlet by my house and check for new chains every time I'm in there.  I usually get them for anywhere from 6 to 10 bucks or so. 
I use them until they're dull, then I hang them on a nail until I'm out of sharp ones.  Then I sharpen all the dull ones, and hang them on a different nail, so I always have sharp chains.


Well I got sick of remembering which nail was which so I made this little guy...

By the way... if anyone else wants one, I'm selling them for $15.00 each.  USPS shipping is $11.00 to anywhere in the USA.
My website is www.edgemetalworks.net

Neat rack.  If I had that problem though, I think in my cheapness and ingenuity, I probably would have just taken a sharpie to the wall above the nail describing which nail was which.

I file my chains on the saw, till they ain't safe to sharpen anymore then I put on a new one.
