Figure I would finish this out for anyone interested. I will still try to get my bench mounted sharpener going also even if people out there don't want to fork out the money for a carbide chain or just learn to maintain a tool/build skills.
When adjusting your chain tension, remind you the bar needs to be loose enough for the adjuster to function but not excessively loose, sometimes that aspect is forgotten.
With each saw brand or even the size of it in general there may be a different method to adjust tension. My saw has an accessible adjustment screw in the middle of the side cover that retains the bar and chain in between the two nuts that retain these pieces. There is also your plastic chain-guide inserts along with your oiling port for chain lubrication under this cover.
