With a triangular file, it's is a 10 min job to do yourself.

I sharpen mine all the time before or after use, easy to do.

But, remember, when chainsaw chains are manufactured, they links are quenched to harden the edges. Once you sharpen, you will take off the hardened surface layer, and it will always need sharpening on a more regular bassis, so worth getting a good file and keeping it sharp yourself.

I was told you have to have a licence for a chainsaw and a licence to cut and take wood is this true?

I would like to see the mess after you use a triangular file. and I suggest yrret that you assume some knowledge on the subject before giving advice.



Unless you are experienced you should use a purpose made guide for the size of chain you sharpen giving due regard to both angles, you should also drop the height on the rakers after a couple of sharpens.



A properly sharpened and tensioned chain will make cutting so much easier, I may well be running a workshop on the subject soon so watch this space.



Also try and get some decent files the ones here are very poor.



And Rocky yes, you require a license 40tl a year per saw available from the forestry department.

As Hippo says, only round section files should be used on domestic saws, they come in different diameters to suite the various tooth sizes. correct sharpening is necessary for safe effective cutting..If you do not know how it's done, don't risk it...the consequences could be very serious..

The yapi market OK-SA Ticaret (Zihni is his name) a few doors away from the post office in Lapta sharpens them.

Good advice from Hippo (again) on this subject.



Use a correct round file and guide and file at 30 degs you won't go to far wrong.



Always use plenty of chain oil which will help to protect the chain.



I find that the biggest problems with chains is the operator,.... he just uses and uses his saw til the chain links are blunt and starting to burr and this makes you take more off the chain everytime you sharpen.



Be careful with those saws gents

I personally do not like the way they sharpen chains at Zihni's shop since it hand operated and chain dont stay sharp long enough.

I'd recommend the stihl distrubutor in guzelyourt.Proper sharpening machine,fully machine operated.

When sharpening yourself,try doing it when chain is cold.

I am sorting it out at the moment a provisional syllabus and venue



Choosing the right saw

Safety precautions.

Care and maintenance



Starting the saw

Cross cutting

Tree pruning for beginners.



This will be split into smaller units as determined by the experience of the course participants.



It will be aimed at anyone who think they may benefit from it.



Participants will have to be in possession of a working power saw that has a chain break.
