Pfft, not only do I not sharpen my Chainsaw blades, I don't even start mine to use it
What's that noise?
I seriously cant see how the hell a man can get by without a chainsaw and welder...
I'm forever needing mine for different things..
Cant imagine not owning either
I don’t have any trees big enough to need a chainsaw.
You forgot your Mesquite log at my place.
Oh good point. Now I need a chainsaw.
Chainsaws come in handy for other work, like a 27' X 20' deck I'm going to have to take down this coming cool weather time.
It's made of 2" X 6" planks and the C.S. will make much shorter work of it.
Though to be sure, some of the them I'll harvest whole for a few tables I plan to make. These planks I put in new only 2 years ago, so they're in very good condition. I'll be using my Skilsaw on them.....The rest are pretty weather worn and will be removed via my C.S. and a bit of grunt work....
I do have some very large oak trees. Heck, just pruning the limbs produce 10"/12" firewood size logs.
I heated my home in Oklahoma with wood that I cut during the summer months. I wanted the limb wood and swiped that from construction sites. The regulations wouldn't allow burning the wood piles, so there was plenty of wood available. Being thrifty, I was always trying to reduce the cost of chain saw maintenance, and sharpened a lot of chains.
Lesson learned: By the time the chain dulled, the bar was worn and the stretched chain tore up the sprockets at the bar tip and the clutch end. I was working full time and a lot of hours, so farting around with sharpening the chain was just wasted time. When the saw began to cause trouble, I trashed the forward parts and replaced it all in one operation.
Being "thrifty" and throwing away a good saw chain and not just resharpening it...does not compute in my book
If your making saw dust then you should become intimate with a rat tail file. Unless you enjoy wasted hours smelling burning sawdust, in that case drive on
