    I’m impressed with the Polestar 2 electric car. I want one! It’s not too expensive, and kind of stylish. Electric cars don’t have to be boring.

    Penny Lane (Remastered 2015)


    Penny Lane
    The Beatles

    Penny Lane, there is a barber showing photographs
    Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
    And all the people that come and go
    Stop and say hello

    On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
    The little children laugh at him behind his back
    And the banker never wears a mac
    In the pouring rain, very strange

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    I sit, and meanwhile back

    In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
    And in his pocket is a portrait of the queen
    He likes to keep his fire engine clean
    It's a clean machine

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    A four of fish and finger pies
    In summer, meanwhile back

    Behind the shelter, in the middle of the roundabout
    The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
    And though she feels as if she's in a play
    She is anyway

    Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer
    We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
    Then the fireman rushes in
    From the pouring rain, very strange

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    I sit, and meanwhile back

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    Penny Lane

    It occurs to mention that present thread started after bad faith killed another discussion.

    Naturally, here we are, again.

    Y'know. Whatever.

    Ok so
    I'm filing down the rakers on my 24 inch chainsaw chain run by the 59cc powerhead.
    As the cutters are 1/2 gone. I'm going with the angle between the rakers and cutters
    I've chosen to have about 7-8 degrees angle
    may be too aggressive maybe not
    -------------
    previous free-handing left them between 5 and 10 degrees
    so I'm thinking of bringing the proud ones down to 7-8 degrees

    Your thoughts?

    "Free-handing"? (Silence, you giggling tweens in the background!)

    So you're like my father was, and the defiant guy in the video at bottom -- you don't use depth gauges or maintain the original depth setting that came with the chain, due to dissatisfaction with it, or whatever? (In contrast, an orthodoxy video: How to use a chain saw depth or raker gauge)

    Are you cutting hardwood or softwood?

    A 0.025 inch depth or difference between the height of the cutter tooth and the height of the raker is thrown around for hardwood. And 0.030 inch for softwood. But use your own judgment (or experiment) for filing them down to what works best for you.

    To be honest, I've got no idea what hubby does -- i.e., is he a follower of canon and employer of depth gauges, or not? (Don't care, don't wanna know.) It would largely be hard woods like red oak around here, the planted evergreens aren't fair game.

    Link to embedded video at bottom: How to file chainsaw rakers without a guage

    EXCERPT: Most people do it by using a raker gauge. I would show you one, but mine are in the back corner. I'd have to dig them out because I don't use them. I file my rakers free hand.

    Oh, I can just imagine in the comments. Maybe not over here, but if I do a short video about this, I can imagine hearing about that in the comments. You'll never get them even, your chainsaw is not going to cut smooth, it's going to cut crooked, and on and on and on and on.

    If the way I do it caused those kind of problems, I would have stopped doing it this way 30 years ago. The way I check the depth is I put a flat edge like a file across the two teeth. I can see how far it goes below,

    I drop mine down significantly lower than what's recommended. I can't tell you how many hundredths of an inch or what my setting is. I go by how well the saw cuts.

    The chainsaw manufacturers have chainsaw manufacturers recommendations their recommendations on how to file the rakers, how deep to file them. But keep in mind they're selling chainsaws to everybody -- people who have different needs, different uses, they have different power heads, different chains. They have to come up with a good all-around number.

    If you have more power, you can go down a little lower. I have a good aggressive square ground chain -- I can go a little bit lower. I cut a lot of soft woods. I also have experience running a saw. I can get by with dropping my rakers down lower, so I can get a faster cut.

    But keep in mind the lower they are the greater the risk of kickback. So don't listen to me, only do what the manufacturer tells you.

    With that out of the way, I'm going to show you how I file these... ​

    Thanks CC
    small world, etc. I had seen your posted film
    That guy is a tat more patterned than am I (5 strokes)

    A bit more research
    and westcoast saw makes a raker filing plate that goes down to .05(factory settings are usually .025--.o35)
    so I got out my feeler gauges and measured and the lowest ones were a tad under .05(.047)
    at that lever the saw is very aggressive---you might say grabby
    but for crosscutting it should be fine---I wouldn't try a plunge cut with it
    even with my freehand variety the thing cut ok
    ---I should label this chain for anyone else who might use it

    ................... more later, my son is taking me out to dinner

    Well, it seems that I won't have time to test the chain---for awhile.
    In a couple days, we're off to Rome then down the Amalfi coast for a couple weeks.

    Suggestions?

    Does that mean a stop at Minori? Say hello to Leone if he still works at Crystal Bar. (By now, surely as likely as palm trees growing in Antarctica.)
