  • The Secret to Saving your Chainsaw Bar, Tips from the Pros

    You may recognize my dad from HGTV's "Carver Kings" or OLN's "Saw Dogs. We run our saws in ways they were never meant to be run, and that means we end up with some pretty beat up carving bars and regular chainsaw bars. We go over the secrets of dressing your bar and extending its life.

      When dressing your bars in the fashion described in this video, remember that he is using a hard nose bar without a bearing mounted sprocket. If you attempt to dress the bar nose the way he does on a sprocket nose bar, you will grind the tips off the sprocket teeth and put abrasive into the sprocket bearings.

      Also, when dressing the rails, he is doing it freehand. That's fine with practice, but when I dress bars in my shop I use the disc sander so that I can set the bars flat table on the table and that way I am sure that the bar rails are square to the bar groove.

      cheers

        Something else to be concerned about is the rails are surface hardened. About .010" in depth.
        Dressing the is good, but done too many times and you get down into the soft untreated steel.
        Then your bar is junk.
        Thanks
