See how to sharpen a chainsaw with a Dremel rotary tool.
To keep your chainsaw in good working condition it should be sharpened regularly and a Dremel rotary tool act as an excellent sharpener. To demonstrate this we'll be using a Dremel 10.8 Volt Lithium Ion tool, the chainsaw sharpening attachment, and a #543 sharpening stone. Be sure to check your chainsaw manufacturers guide for which size stone to use. A Dremel 400 series XPR, 300, 200, or 100 series tool can be used as well. After you're sharpening stone and attachment are in place sharpen all the teeth in one direction with the saw in the same place. Always try to take the same number of passes on each tooth.
Line the tool up with the second 30 degree mark on the attachment and sharpen the teeth the opposing direction. Repeat on all the rest of the teeth. Here's some more thoughts on sharpening a chainsaw. Your chainsaw attachment comes with spacers. The larger pink stones require two, medium orange stones require one and the blue gray stones do not need any. For safety unplug electrical panels before sharpening and remove spark plugs for gas models. Always adjust the tension of the chain based on your manufacturer's recommendation.
