After using anew chaini hit dirt. isharpenit withadifferntanglewillthat make a differencein cutting.

sure will , most saws have different angle cuts to teeth on blade this "angle" needs to be maintained as the "rake" teeth that are behind the cut teeth are set to provide a good way to wipe out cut debris (cut,rake,cut,etc.) this is how chain cuts thru wood , if one changes the cut angle on teeth the rake teeth might not do there job correct and saw bogs and "files" thru wood rather than chips thru wood ,takes longer ,more fuel, more effort , a look at saw cuttings tells the tale , more tiny file sawdust = dull chain --- large Chips and less dust = sharp chain

How to sharpen a chainsaw by hand with a file

Having a sharp chainsaw is very important when you want to cut down a tree because using a dull chainsaw can be very dangerous and may even ruin the chain.

To start it is imperative that you make sure the chainsaw is disconnected from power and completely shut off. Place the chain side of the chain saw in a vice grip and make sure that the chain is free to move, that its not touching the grip on the top or bottom.

Check the diameter of the teeth on the chain to determine the size file that you will need to use. Placing the file in to the curve of the tooth, hold it at the same angle of the blade, usually a 30 degree angle. Using a little bit of pressure slide the file away from you, against the tooth. If you have a guide you should use it to make sure that the angle is right. Repeat this for every second tooth on the chain, advancing the chain so that the one you are working on is always on top.

When you have finished all the teeth in that direction (every other blade) open the vise grip and turn the saw around. Look at the clearance of the rakers, depth of the gauge of the teeth, they should be 1/10 of an inch lower than the cutter. If they are too tall you will need to file them down using a flat mill file. Using the same motion file down the rakers until they are 1/10 of an inch lower than the the cutter's hook.

You should wear gloves when working with a chainsaw because they are very sharp. If you don't know what you are doing maybe you should consider going to an expert before embarking on your own adventure.

proper method is to use what is referred to as a "lapping table" professional sharpening shops have these , look in your yellow pages for scissor sharpening , but if your a skilled hand and have some time then a simple fine file will work as well , keep same angles on cutting edges ,approx. 30 degree angle

Craftsman saw mod # 113-298051

The blade is able to be set to different angles by the handle under the front edge of the table. There is a lock handle to keep the angle set correctly. Loosen the lock handle, press a square (90 degree tool) against the flat of the blade - not the teeth - then lock the blade in place.

What is the difference between the angle cut blades and the shear cut blades on my bolt cutter?

angle cut blades have the cutter head angled at 25-35 degrees for easier insertion into tight spots. Shear cut blades are light normal scissor blades

Hi I am after sharpening my MS290 Stihl Chainsaw blade, but don't know what angle the sharpener should be set at. Kind regards Peter Hopkisnson

Hi, there are different angles for different chain types but 30 degrees across and 10 degrees down are good general purpose angles. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Blade does not square up on c10fsh miter saw

To square up a mite saw blade, you need to eeither move the table or adjust it to be square if it is out in the mitre angle, or if it is out in the bevel angle the whole saw head needs to be adjusted, and this is done via the bevel adjustment at the back of the saw. There may be a bevel stop bolt to return the saw back to 90 degrees if moved to a different bevel angle. Usually the blade itself is not adjusted bu either the saw table or the bevel angle of the saw head itself to correct these issues.

Ryobi 18V Hedge Trimmer Blade Question

I use a dremel with a sharpening stone, if u don't have one you can also use a power drill with a small sanding disk (1 inch) and course sand paper (30 or 40 grit). or you can use a bastard file. its too tight to use any kind of angle guide so just take your time and do it by eye. it shouldn't take much to get them sharp enough to do the job, over-sharpening is unnecessary and dangerous, and will make the blades dull faster. sharpen all the free blades, top and bottom, then start the trimmers to advance the blades to free up the sides you couldn't get. i use a light penetrating oil to clean the blades first, then lithium grease spray to lubricate.
