A chain saw sharpener is an essential tool for any home handyperson who wants to get the best from his chainsaw. A well maintained, sharp chainsaw should be able to cut through any wood with hardly any effort. And therein is the challenge, as I would say the majority of chainsaw owners either never sharpen their chainsaw, or don’t sharpen it nearly enough.
Fortunately the good news is that there is no reason to put this off any longer. Because using a chainsaw sharpener is incredibly straightforward, in actual fact it is well within the grasp of any chainsaw owner.
Indeed, based upon on how technical you want to get, you can sharpen a chainsaw without even requiring a dedicated chainsaw sharpener. You will find that many chainsaw users only use a small round file for day to day chain sharpening.
The truth is that any cutting tool will dull with use, that is especially true of chain saws where the jobs they aer asked to perform are particularly demanding.
Coming in contact with rocks, metal, or even dirt can quickly dull chain, which makes tasks such as cutting firewood or trimming trees much more difficult and time consuming.
You know when it is time to sharpen your saw chain when you find cutting is slower and more difficult, or the wood chips become smaller, and in extreme cases turning to saw dust.
