    this would be a good informative "how to" video if you was missing a hand. Or you could just move it out of the way so people could see what you're doing….just saying.

    @kxdirtrider85 What do you mean "what kind of Echo saw is that?!" Didn't you hear him?

    It's a "classic" chainsaw!! What a joke, just like all "Expert Village" videos. Their entire video collection should be pulled from YouTube. They're going to get people hurt

    Sephy0 replied to my comment which i made some months ago about this video and that my comments(valid) were full of "hate". Get a grip of yourself pal. I'm just a professional who was irritated by the poor quality of instruction on said video. P.s it remains a turd that cant be polished. Hope that wasn't too "hateful" you poor sensitive soul….

    @Iclimbthereforeiam actually he says right in the video to do it at a 25-30 degree angle. But I guess you didn't watch the whole thing before you jumped to conclusions. How the hell do people find a way to hate on even a chainsaw sharpening video?! It's beyond me…

    Dirt will dull your chain with in seconds and no dont use a Dremal tool that will destroy the chain. There are small round files that you can buy that are ment for the size of your chain and learn to sharpen it right. Im still using the same chain i had 3 1/2 years ago so it works.

    The chain may never have to be sharpened if it id nice clean wood that has few to none knots

    Alittle prep work goes along way when it come to sharpening your chain and it can be as easy as chopping, with an axe, dirty bark or wood to get to the nice clean wood; I know no one will do this but just alittle advice that works for me when im not in a hurry

    @2123rj I think you have the chain on backwards with the cutting edge facing you.

    Thanks! That's what i thought, but it just didn't look right, when i was doing it.
    & Then i might need a new chain?
    My kept stoping, mid cut. Finally it wouldn't cut at all.
    Have a Good One!

    He doesn't say that he takes it to a professional, but that he has it "professionally sharpened". He's probably referring to the $400 chainsaw sharpening machine that he probably owns.

    Hope his cutters aren't as dull as his commentary. Should be wearing gloves,should actually put some force into it rather than tickle it. Also no mention of horizontal angles, I could go on. Some "professional"….

    Thanks. Very helpful. I needed this info.
    I know professional tree cutters sharpen their saws often and periodically taken it into a professional saw chain sharpening company to get everything perfect again.

    If you buy good chain like Oregon for example there are lines on top of the tooth for guiding the angles as the tooth is being sharpened and gets smaller with use.
    Its very important to keep the teeth the same angle and length

    Most good woodcutters like myself sharpen by hand whenever the chain needs sharpening. That can vary in times from right away to more than a tank of gas it just depends. Sharpening by hand is the best way for cutting firewood or logging in the woods and the rakers should be brought down every so often maybe every other sharping or third time. There is a better guide to use for this to keep them exactyly the same by placing it over the top of the tooth depending on what tooth is being sharpened.

    With the info from the vid' and the helpful comment by ticker511 and other posts -I now have a lovely sharp stihl saw-I will get the guides next time but this got me out of a fix as i had a tree own–Thanks all–

    The raker's should 40 thou., he never looked to see if the chain was dull. Look at the chain, if there's a shine on top the tooth it's dull. Fill on till the shine is gone, make sure not to file to deep, you will get a hook in the tooth this will make it grab. But don't file to high, this will lay the tooth back. No it's not that hard, don't give up, it's fun to keep your chain sharp, cut with, and half the work.

    wow you have been sharpening things for thirty years and you still dont know how to sharpen a chain saw chain. And most of the time when people say the dont need or like the guides they dont know what the hell there doing and this vid is a perfect example
