Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and  
other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State  
of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive  
harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:  
• Lead from lead-based paints.  
• Crystalline silica from bricks, cement and other masonry products.  
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.  
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you  
do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals:  
Work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equip-  
ment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter  
out microscopic particles.

Machine Description  
Manufacture Date  
of Your Machine  
the model t23108 Chain saw sharpener quickly  
and accurately sharpens the cutter links of hand-  
held chain saws.  
once the sharpener is properly set up for the  
chain specifications, the three critical angles of  
the cutter link are sharpened with one downward  
movement of the spinning grinding wheel. the  
next cutter link is quickly and precisely moved into  
the correct position for sharpening with the aid of  
the adjustable advancement guide. this proce-  
dure ensures that all cutter links of the chain are  
sharpened to the same specifications.

uals and manual updates for free on our website
