Re the sprockets . I think Rob D says something like change the rim every 3 chains .

Interesting, thanks Stubby.

 

If that is the case they could probably do with a change. Another thing to try.

Yes it's quite frustrating. We are doing something wrong I just can't get to the bottom of it.

I have no idea without actually seeing it in action - once was doing a lot of sprocket tips ( 3) in a hardwood  Forestry job,  then went up a tooth on drive sprocket and it stopped happening 😳 K

I think you have got to start with a blank canvas mate . New bar , new powermate rim , new chain .  See what happens then .

I've moved house but don't think this has had a massive effect on my chainsaw technique.

Genius! I can't believe I haven't tried that yet.

 

Standing on one leg with a curly wurly tucked behind my left ear and one eye swiveled towards the new moon had no positive effect whatsoever.

That's a good idea. They'd have to be using it for the same job and I don't know anyone who does as much 'freehand'  ringing up as we do.

So when you've filled your dumpy bags with sawdust for sale what do you do with the wood?!
