What is the file size (to sharpen chain) for a Poulan Pro 295 46cc?


I am pretty sure this machine ran a .325 pitch chain, so the file size is 3/16, if it is running 3/8 low profile chain ( 91 ) it will be a 5/32 file, the pitch should be marked on the bar .

Sharpen chain with an electric sharpener


Hi there,

Having cut a lot of wood when I was younger I know from experience just how important a sharp chain is.You need a guide so all the teeth cut at the same angle.If I were doing it now I would use an outfit like this.You will find that when your out cutting that it won't take much to dull a chain and that cuts in to the sprocket that turns the chain.A sharpe chain will throw big chips whill a dull chain will through out small chips because it's scratching the wood instead of cutting it off.We just used files without guides.I never did get the hang of that But my partner did.This is what I would use today.By the way never use a chain saw alone ,that way you have some one to help you if something goes wrong. I always add this for your information. If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions.I am not endorsing this site just the type of tool.

Looking for sharping stone from efco fl64 /8 chain


There are multiple chain sizes 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/32", 7/32" and 3/8" chains so the /8 chain number has me guessing. After the qurestions below, here is my best guess.

Also is this for a chain grinder?" or

Are you looking of a hand held type stone?

Aluminum Oxide Chainsaw Sharpening Grinding Stone
or Ceramic stone?

I will assume that your looking for aluminum oxide stones at this time.

http://www.oregonchain.com/homeowner/products/accessories/replacement_stones.htm

This is wide selection of sharpening stones.

You can also use hand held chain sharpening files of the same size that have shapening angles marked on the file set fixture.

Hopefully you have a sharpening guide that will keep your angles correct while shapening.

A safety note: Improperly sharpened chainsaw blades can be very dangerous to the user.

Thanks for using FixYa.

What size file do i use for a Ryobi chainsaw model PCN4545 to sharpen the chain


The standard chain file should fit it. It is about 3/16 dia. I found the dremel to work 10 times better, they have a little stone bit just for chains. Eventually, you have to take it in for sharpening, it will set all the teeth the same.

It is dependent on the manufacturer of the chain not the saw.

I think it is exactly what you requested.
I hope you find this helpful.

20" poulan chain saw cuts at angle


Hi
You must have hit a nail or stone with the one side of the chain. When the chain gets duller on one side than the other is what makes a saw cut at a angle. Get the chain sharpened and it should cut straight again.

Chain saw cuts at an angle


I have seen this problem of a chain saw cutting at an angle brought up again and again on forums, and result in a variety of answers about sharpening the chain, or replacing the bar and/or chain. In a number of these requests for solutions, none of the advice has solved the problem. I have used chain saws for about 45 years now, and there is a condition that some chains develop with the pitch of the teeth or the guides...or both...that will cause them to cut to the left or right at an angle (usually left). While I have not figured out what causes this, I have solved the problem of correcting it. First, turn the nose of your bar and chain toward you on a bench, look down it like sighting a gun and take a look at each tooth and guide. If the saw is cutting left, the teeth or the guides (or both) on the left (while you are looking down the bar from its tip) will be pitched differently than the teeth and/or guides on the right. The pitch of those teeth or guides (those little ears that stick up about on-fourth inch in front of each tooth) will be: 1) too much in line with each other, or 2) the teeth or guides will be less pitched than the teeth or guides on the right side of the chain. Solution: take a large pair of lineman's pliers or similar pliers and pitch those teeth and guides to match those on the right side of the chain. Also, make sure the curved part of your chain teeth peek out around the outside edge of those guides. If the guides are directly in line with your teeth, they will hinder cutting by the teeth. You can do this with the chain on the saw if you don't have too much slack between the bar and the chain. Last, make sure that the chain guides are not as tall or taller than your teeth. If they are, you will need to file them down a little (with a flat file) until the teeth are slightly longer than the guides. Afterward, make sure the teeth on both sides are equally sharp, and go cut a straight cut! TennesseeBob
