What angle do I set my chainsaw sharpener?
The sharpening angle will generally be between 25° and 35° – the harder the wood, the greater the angle. To maintain the correct angle, we recommend that you use a sharpening grid or a filing gauge as an aid.
Why does my chainsaw chain dull so quickly?
If your chain dulls quickly, then it could be a couple of things. Your chain will cut too deep or barely cut at all if your rakers or depth gauges are filed down too much or not enough, respectively. Get yourself a depth gauge appropriate for your saw and use it every time you sharpen your chain.
How often should I sharpen my chainsaw?
In most cases, sharpening the chain should happen after ten times of being in use, while in other situations, you have to sharpen it after every session.
What angle should I sharpen my Stihl chainsaw chain?
STIHL saw chains are generally filed to an angle of 30° – parallel to the service mark for the filing angle. Hold the file so that one quarter of its diameter projects above the top plate.
Does the chainsaw teeth sharpener really work?
It works but buyer beware! This product is very handy but keep in mind that it will not replace a proper sharpening of your chainsaw blade yes it will work if you are in a bind and you need a quick sharpening but if you want your chainsaw blade last I don’t suggest using this on it!
Does cutting wet wood dull a chainsaw?
Does Cutting Wet Wood Dull a Chainsaw? Using your chainsaw to cut through wet wood will not dull the chain any faster than using it for other types of wood. Using your chainsaw to cut through wet wood will not change the efficiency of your chainsaw.
How long should a chainsaw blade stay sharp?
So, how long does a chainsaw chain last? A chainsaw chain can last for 5+ years with frequent use. For occasional users, a chain could last for decades.
Why does my chainsaw cut in a curve?
Chainsaws often start pulling to one side, curving in that direction even when you try to maintain a straight line. If your chainsaw is not cutting straight, it’s a sign that it needs maintenance – usually routine blade maintenance, although it could be the sign of a bigger problem.
