Re: tailgate chainsaw sharpening

Your a Gem Daniel, I like your nice chilled out approach to even the most mundane of tasks

Like has been said, never file on the backstroke though

Re: tailgate chainsaw sharpening

I wish I had left the volume off, the sound of that backstroke will haunt me for days

Re: tailgate chainsaw sharpening

I don't put pressure on the back stroke.. just drag it back across the tooth to eliminate an unnecessary move.. does that dull the file? I never noticed if it does..
