There is only one way to sharpen a saw chain and that is with a file, all others are a comprimise.

As Hippo says,Files are the best way,just make sure you file is the right diameter for the chain teeth.....

Also if using a file make sure you file at 30 degrees, thats the correct angle the cutting link should be.



I believe the yapi market opposite Starling in Alsancak are now selling chainsaws so they sould have a file kit.

Sorry turtle you are wrong it depends on what chain you are using, yes generally it is 30deg and 10deg down but that is only for some chain.



Some chain require 35 deg and flat.



This willl give you the correct size file for the chain



1/4 Micro 5/32 (4.0 mm) Round

3/8 Picco Mini 5/32 (4.0 mm) Round

3/8 Picco Micro 5/32 (4.0 mm) Round

.325 Micro, Super 3/16 (4.8 mm) Round

3/8 Micro, Super 13/64 (5.2 mm) Round

404 7/32

Not many chain have a 35 deg angle anymore Hippo.



All Stihl and Oregon chain are now 30 deg.



Having said all that if its for the homeowner in Cyprus cutting firewood then anything between 25 to 35 deg will still cut dirty wood.

The price of chain in the UK has tumbled so much over the last few years it hardly seems worth sharpening these days, a full sharpen on our bench grinder costs nearly as much as a new chain.

The best way to sharpen a chainsaw is to start it up, rev the shite out of it, and rub it up against a concrete wall. You might wanna wear some goggles.

Let's hope knowbody trys it!



In the U.K it still pays to have a sharpen as it is less 1/2 the price of a chain, of course the sharpen is not quite like a new chain but close enough.

Anyone who can't sharpen their own chainsaw chain shouldn't be using a bl00dy chainsaw!
