1.) Inserting the chain you want to sharpen into the guide bar
- Do this by undoing the chain locking screw
2.) Setting the grinding angle according to the specific cations for your chain (normally between 30-35º)
- Undo the locking screw for setting the grinding angle.
- Set the desired grinding angle using the scale.
- Re-tighten the fastening screw.
3.) Setting the chain stopper
- Swing the chain stopper onto the chain.
- Pull the chain backwards against the chain stopper until the latter stops a cutting link.
Important! You must make sure that the angle of the stopped cutting link coincides with the grinding angle. If it does not, pull the chain one link further.
- Swing the grinding head down until the grinding wheel is touching the chain link that is to be ground. (To do so, you can move the chain back and forth a little using the setting screw of the chain stopper).
4.) Setting the depth limit
- Swing the grinding head down and set the grinding depth using the setting screw.
Important! The grinding depth should be set so that the full cutting edge of the cutting link is sharpened.
5.) Locking the chain
- Tighten the chain locking screw.
6.) Grinding the chain link
- Use the equipment only for sharpening saw chains. Never grind or cut other materials.
- Before sharpening the saw chain, clamp it into the chain bar. This will prevent jamming of the grinding wheel caused by a loose saw chain.
- Slowly guide the grinding wheel to the saw blade. If the grinding wheel approaches the saw chain too quickly or jerkily, this may cause damage to the grinding wheel. Injuries may result from parts being catapulted out.
- Switch on the equipment with the On/Off switch.
- Carefully move the grinding wheel with the grinding head against the set link.
- Switch off the equipment with the On/Off switch. Every second link in the chain must be sharpened in this way. To know when every second link in the entire chain has been sharpened, mark the first link (e.g. with chalk). Once all the cutting links on one side have been sharpened, the grinding angle must be set to the same number of degrees on the other side. You can then begin to sharpen the links of the other side without having to make any further adjustments).
7.) Adjusting the depth limiter spacing
- Once the chain has been fully sharpened, you must make sure that the depth limiter spacing is kept. The depth limiters must be lower than the cutting links. You may need to fi le the depth limiters to the specific cations for your chain using a file (not included)
