Chainsaw Bar Oiling
Keeping your chainsaw bar oiling during use is the life of not only your bar but your saw. If the bar is not oiling, you will over power the engine on the saw thus depleting it's service life. <br /><br />On most saws there is a oil set screw on the bottom of the saw next to the bar; it has three settings. One way to see if your bar is oiling is to start the saw and put a piece of cardboard, old shirt or board in front of the saw while it is running. Rev the engine up with the bar in front of the piece of material and you should see a vertical line appear. If you can see a vertical line, your saw is oiling properly. If you see a vertical line with a lot of spray, then it is oiling to much. Adjust the set screw accordingly. <br /><br />Another thing to keep in mind is to make sure your oil line running from you oil fill tank is not clogged with debris keeping the bar from getting sufficient oil. <br /><br />Also, if you have a bar where the tip can be lubed, make sure you grease it. The tip of the bar gets extremely hot and keeping the tip properly greased will allow the bearings in the tip to last longer. Here is what you need and how to do it below:<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Grease Tip of Bar</span><br /><br />Purchase a pre-filled grease gun manufactured specifically for the tips of chainsaw bars. Oftentimes, when purchasing a new saw, one will be included, if not they are inexpensive to buy. Use high temp grease when refilling. Place tip of grease gun in hole at tip of bar, and give a few pumps. When grease comes out the end of bar, enough has been used.
