YouTube is a wonderful source of information but it isn’t perfect. There’s lots of misinformation out there and many videos trade quality content for fancy presentation, meaning you waste time waiting for them to get to the good stuff, if they ever do.
When it comes to sharpening chainsaws, it’s an easy task that is equally easy to get wrong. The videos below are two of the best instructional videos on this subject because they provide thorough advice presented clearly without any fancy intros or interruptions for “a word from our sponsor”, because no one has time for that crap.
The first is a video from a channel called Steve’s Small Engine Saloon, a Canadian fella who certainly knows his stuff.
The second is from a channel called Tips From A Shipwright, which sounds an odd source for chainsaw expertise but don’t be fooled.
Either video is a great option for anyone wanting some easy to understand guidance on how to sharpen their chain properly.
