The best way is to do it by hand, using a manual chain file. you can see it in this video, and see how he uses it

Sharpen chainsaw chain


I have four options when my chain saw blade gets dull. 1) replace it with a new one. 2) take it to a repair shop and pay half the price of a new blade. 3) Use my hand sharpening file kit from Lowe's, or 4) Use my electric chain saw blade sharpener form Harbor Freight. I recently purchased one for about $30 on sale. In one setting I earned the price of the sharpener by sharpening my old blades that were just hanging on a peg waiting to take to the repair shop. Really, the sharpener takes a small amount of skill, but the few minutes it takes to learn can save a lot of time and moo-lah.

What do all the numbers mean on the chainsaw sharpener kits?


Not all chainsaws are the same size, the numbers that you see on the kits are the size of the blades on the saw. You have to make sure that the sharpener you get is the right size for your saw.

Is it dangerous to use a chainsaw with a dull blade?


not to scare you, but most chainsaw accidents occur due in some part to a dull blade. if the blade is not sharp, it may be more prone to getting caught in the wood which can cause it to buck when it comes free. this is very dangerous, so keep the blade sharp- anyways it will make the cutting go smoother

Where can I get the blades sharpened? Marco Stratford CT 06614


you can do it yourself with instructions from ehow.com. see below OR you can get it done at a small engine shop repair, where they fix the lawnmowers, slingtrimmers and chainsaws such as Makita, shtil or any other company that makes them. Hope this helps!
How to Sharpen Hedge Trimmer Blades Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Metal filer Eye protective goggles
  1. Sharpen Your Shears
    • 1 Place the hedge trimmers on a flat surface. Ensure that the blades are pointed away from your body.
    • 2 Position a pair of pliers around the bolt on your hedge trimmers. Clamp the pliers on the bolt securely.
    • 3 Twist the bolt counter-clockwise to remove it.
    • 4 Separate the paired blades.
    • 5 Hold one of the handles with the blade facing away from you. Slide a metal filer down the length of the blade until you reach the pointed end. Continue to sharpen the blade for a minute or two, and then do the same with the other blade.
    • 6 Test the blades with a piece of paper. Hold a piece of paper next to the blade, and then try to cut the paper without using a lot of force. If the paper slices easily, then your blades are completely sharpened. If the blades do not cut the paper, continue to sharpen the blades with the metal filer, and repeat the paper test.

What is the chain saw blade angle?


This is the angle that you cut each tooth. if you have a chain sharpener you will see numbers on it with a line directly below it. A good standard is 25 degrees, if you want it for ripping purposes you can modify the angle.
moz-screenshot-2.pngmoz-screenshot-3.pngYou really want to match the angle that the blade or chain as been set for.
I would also recommend this website. http://www.wikihow.com/Sharpen-a-Chainsaw
good luck

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.

I need to know the right angle to sharpen my chainsaw


If your saw still has the original bar and chain, it was supplied with a .325" pitch chain and you'll need a 3/8" round file with a sharpening guide to properly sharpen it.

Here's a link to the Husqvarna site to the Rancher 455 models so you can select the correct manual to download, that matches your particular saw, based on the year of manufacture, etc.

There is some excellent information about maintaining your saw, along with a really good guide with step-by-step instructions for proper sharpening.

http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/?query=455&types=O

If you're having trouble figuring out the right manual for your saw, use the online Customer Support page and they'll reply.

Hope you find this Very Helpful - Best regards!
