Sharpen Your Chainsaw

Chainsaw Sharpening Tips

  • A properly sharpened chain produces large uniform chips. When your saw starts producing finer sawdust, you know it’s time to sharpen your chain.
  • Inspect your chain and look for the cutter in the worst condition. You’ll want to start with this tooth.
  • Ultimately, you want every tooth on the chain to be sharpened the same and to be the same length.
  • Before beginning the sharpening process, make sure your chain is snug on the bottom of the bar rail and place the bar in a vice.
  • Use the proper filing guide throughout the process for the best results.
  • In most cases, your chain will require the same amount of filing strokes on each cutter.
  • After filing your cutters, be sure your depth gauge is properly set using the proper tools.
