    I'd say to the right if anything, but the fibers on the right look compressed to me, not cut.

    That it is. Anyone else love the smell of new rope? They should make an air freshener with that scent :^D My vertex helmet smells like that(rope) still, even after sweating in it. I'm gonna miss it when it loses that new helmet smell :^D

    That stuff will pay for itself in 1 or 2 trees, depending on what he had before. A big oak or cottonwood will be short work when you can drop pieces that weigh a ton and catch them. I've luckily never needed to catch stuff that big, but i don't do trees full time and have been lucky that i didn't get a monster right next to a driveway or over a deck (that i couldn't manage with a vertical speedline).

    If a guy was falling / bore cutting then a silvey / simington sqr/sqr grinder would most likely be the smoothest/fastest cutting - for residential work I stick with the sqr/rnd as you almost always run into dirt/debris in the tree ... easy to sharpen in the field - I can touch up a 20” full house in about 3mins if need be

    Yea, I imagine they do when you're making your living with them. A lot of things make more sense when you're using them every day, even if it's just a quality of life improvement that makes life a little nicer while you work. I'd have liked to have gotten a Rock Exotica Transporter to clip my saw to my saddle, but $70 is a lot of money for a hack that doesn't even climb that much. Well worth it imo if you're in a tree every day. I settled for a blocky... Not sure what it is exactly. A biner with a camlock for people that don't want to learn a truckers hitch, and have $16 to burn :^D I lashed that to my saddle with paracord, and it works pretty well, but it isn't as nice as a Transporter.

    Good blocks are expensive. I was gonna pick one up for my rigging set, but I couldn't justify the cost for my potential(haven't even needed one yet) use.

    I never worried about keeping the cutters the same. My chains cut fine for me. I'm not really fussy about it though. If it's making nice chips, I'm pretty happy. I'm sure I could do better, but I imagine I'm making slight improvements as time goes on with my normal sharpening. Can't see giving a chain a lot of attention with the violent lives they live. Spend the time doing an impeccable job, and you're just doing it again a half hour(or less) later.

    Yea if you can keep em out of the dirt they last a lot longer ! A common misconception is that All the teeth MUST be the same length... not true imho ... the tooth/raker height is the key ... I’ve hit one side of a chain and took out 5 cutters, sharpened those and set raker height and the chain cut fine even though those 5 cutters were visually shorter ! To take ALL the teeth down to the shortest one is a waste of time imho if you are just Buckin wood !

    It's not weird at all, the electricians had a picket a month before because they weren't even using licensed sparkys, let alone union. When you hire the cheapest unqualified people to do stuff, this is the result. I would guess either faulty welds on the structural steel or improper/ partial bolt up of the steel. When assembling structural steel they usually only put a couple bolts in to hold it in place, then a bolt up crew follows behind a few floors down. If they don't (are behind schedule, etc) this could happen as well.

    Yea. doing hardwood, I hit the teeth every tank fill. Otherwise, I do them when it stops cutting as nice as I expect. Might be every two-three tanks on softwood unless I put it in the dirt, which happens way more than it should. Only time I cut with a dull chain is when I'm doing stuff like vines. Pretty much always scratching rocks, and I'm not using my good bars/chains. Vines cut ok with suboptimal sharpening anyway.

    Nice display. Around here, they have coupon packs that mainly promote local businesses. Comes in the mail every week or two, and there's at least four tree care companies in every pack. Dunno how well they work, but I suspect they get bites, especially from the older crowd. Old people love coupons!

    The more hook/thin top plate there is faster wood wear on it regardless of how sharp it is. More material is stronger than less. The position file is in tooth when filing is one way to get more hook. In change of file's angle when filing is better to change to get more hook. More hook make it get grabby and vibrate more with more wear on drivelink sides and bar groove sides. I’ve experimented with different geometry on chains meself Magnus and I agree that too much hook isn’t good on a work chain ...I’ve found a new chain “comes alive” after 4+ sharpenings ... most likely because there is more chip-clearance ... A stitch in time saves nine with chain sharpness ... if you touch up with a few strokes every tank of fuel or so your chain cuts well and will LAST long time ... Years ago when I was new to saws I used to get em sharpened at dealer - they were sharp but they also ground away 1/4 of the tooth every time ! I can get many, many sharpenings (maybe .010 off tooth per filing) - key is to watch your chips and as soon as it starts to dull stop and sharpen or switch to another Saw ... Last job the 395xp bucked almost 2 face cord of 22” ash before she was in need of a touch up- then again that Saw will cut dull or sharp:D
