Portable Chainsaw Bench Clamp
Stephen Nelson, Winston-Salem, N.C., made a portable chainsaw bench clamp to hold his chainsaw’s guide bar steady for chain tightening and hand sharpening.
  He started with a 10-in. long, 6-in. sq. wood block fitted with a screw clamp. A short 2 by 2 piece of scrap wood attached to the block stabilizes it.
  “I just insert the end of the bar into the device and lift the bar slightly so the chain can turn, then tighten the clamp,” says Nelson. “It can be easily placed on a bench or tailgate, and it can be easily lifted and turned around to work on the other side.
  “It holds the bar level and is much more handy than sitting on the ground wrestling with the saw’s power head.”
