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.

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.

Can i sharpen chain

Yes, you can do it with a hand file or if you need to sharpen them often I would suggest an electric sharpener. There are models you can mount to your chainsaw or remove your chain and use a bench mounted sharpener. I would suggest looking at for your sharpening solutions.

McCulloch Chainsaw electrimatic EM250-14 how to sharpen chain with electric sharpener.

I am not a great beleiver in electric sharpeners, they get the cutters too hot, this case hardens them making them brittle and they lose there edge quickly, they can no longer be sharpened with a file as they are like glass, purchase a good roller guide sharpener from a Husqvarna dealer, they are simple to use and work well.

When I sharpen my chain with the timber tuff electric sharpener the chain cuts on an angle what am I doing wrong??

I will wager if you place a protractor on the bar you will find the right and left links are at slightly different angles (one side gets more bite). It only takes a little difference. The usual suspect is the guide on your sharpener. Some grinders require an offset because the wheel is offset more to one side than the other.
I hope you found this helpful.
