Chris Roos of Stens operates the Franzen Chain Sharpening Machine in Henryville, Ind.In response to the series of tornadoes that hit southern Indiana on March 2, Jasper, Ind.-based Stens sent a Relief Team to the towns of Scottsburg and Henryville.

Henryville was hit by two tornados, one of which was an EF4 with winds up to 175 miles per hour. Stens employees Chris Roos and Ryan Schwartz volunteered to assist Scott’s Hardware, located in Scottsburg, with post-storm cleanup. The Stens team arrived with a Franzen Chain Sharpening Machine (pictured) in tow, allowing them to offer free chain sharpening to anyone needing the service in the devastated areas. The team spent a full day in Scottsburg, which suffered hail damage, then spent a second full day in Henryville, offering the chain sharpening service to local volunteers helping to clean up the region.
