Chainsaws are high performance, precision wood cutting machines. When a chain is working well, the saw will cut easily, requiring very little force from yourself. The saw must always produce large chips of wood (never saw dust). The time to file the chain is when you need to push the chain to make it cut. If you at this point examine the cutting edge of the chain, it may appear sharp (this is not good enough). IT MUST BE RAZOR SHARP. If you can see a line of light on the cutting edge THIS IS BLUNT!!!
