Chainsaw Chain Sharpening Tip: Make Marks On Vise
Sharpening chainsaw chains is faster and more accurate for Glenn Alpert since he added lines on his vise.
“I used a Dremel tool to mark the right angle,” he explains. “I put the bar in the vise and run the file 3 or 4 times on each tooth and then move the chain ahead. I can sharpen a chain in less than 5 minutes.”
The Paola, Kan., man has used the method often recently, while cutting Osage orange trees.
“I have to sharpen the chain about every 2 tanks of gas. I cut 10 cords of hedge wood and sharpened the saw every time without taking the chain off,” he says. “The vise is mounted on an old burr mill stand and easy to take to the field.”
