Inspect the chainsaw chain: Before sharpening, inspect the chain for wear and tear, and determine the correct angle for the teeth. Chainsaws, like any cutting tool, need to be sharp to work properly. A blunt chainsaw is not only going to seriously slow you down, but could possibly cause accidents too by getting jammed in the wood instead of slicing through it. So, now we know it’s a pretty good idea to keep your chainsaw sharpened, we need to decide on the right way to go about it.

Chainsaws are supposed to give straight and neat cuts, not bends or curves. Now, if your loving chain saw cuts at an angle, there is something you need to fix. The two main problems that are pointers to a bent cut:

If you find that the teeth are shorter in one row, you have applied greater filing pressure to one side. Even out the length by applying one or two file strokes on the longer teeth.

You should sharpen the chain as needed to maintain its performance and ensure safe operation. What is the best way to sharpen a chainsaw chain? Before we go anywhere when I had a go with the Sharpening Jig I found that no matter how much I tightened it, the thing kept slipping. I really didn’t get very far with this and when you factor how good the Stihl is when comparing, I just gave up. However, if you’re still interested in this type of design then please read on! There is no set number of times you can sharpen a Stihl chainsaw chain. It depends on the chain’s condition and how much material you need to remove.

Summary: how to sharpen your chainsaw

It’s best to use a round file and file guide to sharpen the chain correctly. How often should I sharpen my chainsaw chain? Start filling with long smooth strokes until you begin seeing that the tooth looks bright. Count the number of strokes that give you that. You will need to use the same number used while filling the first tooth for other teeth. When you are done filling the outside tooth, file the inside as well. To sharpen a chainsaw chain by hand, you’ll need a round file, depth gauge, and a guide to help maintain the correct angle. Secure the chain in a vise or clamp and set the file guide to the correct angle. Once the depth gauge height is correct, file the top of the depth gauge at an angle parallel to the service mark on the link – don’t remove any more height as you do this, and take care not to touch the newly sharpened blade tooth with the flat file. When using an electric bench grinder, it’s essential to take extra precautions to avoid injury. Always wear protective gear, such as gloves and goggles, and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the grinder.

The frequency of sharpening your chainsaw chain depends on how often you use it and the type of wood you’re cutting. Generally, if you use your chainsaw regularly, you should sharpen it after every 3 to 5 hours of use. This is because it helps prevent damage to the teeth as well as wear on the guide bar. Additionally, using the correct angle will also improve cutting performance by making sure that each tooth cuts through wood cleanly and efficiently. So there you have it – everything you need to know about Husqvarna X Cut chain sharpening angles.It’s not particularly loud, not that you would need to use it for long periods anyway, because you can have your chain sharpened in absolutely no time whatsoever. Once the depth and angle is set, it’s just a case of pulling the chain through, clamping it in place and pulling the disc down to sharpen the cutters. Then you just ‘rinse and repeat’. A top tip from experience: this tool comes in various sizes, so make sure you get the one that is right for your particular chainsaw to avoid disappointment, but do yourself a favour and get one and make your chainsaw sharpening duties a pleasure rather than a pain. Pros: A depth gauge on a chainsaw chain is responsible for setting the depth of the cut made by each tooth. Over time, the depth gauge can become worn, affecting the chain’s cutting performance. Most people don’t realize that the angle you sharpen a chainsaw has a lot to do with how well it will cut. If you sharpen the saw at too high of an angle, it will bind in the cut and not work as efficiently. Likewise, if you sharpen it at too low of an angle, the chain will come off easily.
