How to set the chain saws

To understand how to install a chain of electric saws, it is possible, having studied in detail its purpose, structure, features of equipment, having controlled the degree of tension of the track. It should be noted that this equipment is incredibly easy to use. Therefore, all work is done quickly, efficiently and harmoniously.

Electric saw

Power saws are used in construction and home workshops to perform various tasks.

Chainsaw assignment for chainsaw

Recently, cutting tools are represented in a variety. To ensure maximum convenience, it is advisable to purchase higher-quality copies.

Electric saws are used in the construction field for cutting wooden surfaces, building arrangements and local area. This is a device of practical importance, the universal qualities of which allow it to work on a two-phase motor. The sharp elements of this device are represented by chains of various configurations. The main part of such devices has metal tires and sprockets.

Main parts of chainsaw

Main parts of chainsaw.

Non-professional power saws are designed for a chain pitch of 3.25 inches. These dimensions significantly reduce the coefficient of vibration movements, but this does not in the best way affect the power of the device: it drops noticeably. High quality gears are equipped with rows moving in 3/8 and 0.404 pitch increments. In the process of acquiring a chainsaw, special attention should be paid to the quality of the sharp part, i.e., the tracks.

Features of the cutting part of the chainsaw

When buying a saw, it is important to pay attention to the following components:

  • groove thickness indicators;
  • chain distance;
  • number of links.
Circular Saw

Circular saw - one of the varieties of the tool.

Qualitative samples of such tools are distinguished by the highest performance indicators. Such models are constant, do not change their data as a result of constant friction and can work under any adverse conditions. Chains of any saws have 50 main links. Their walking distance corresponds to 3/8, the groove is 1.3 mm. In some cases, the choice of this element depends on some features:

  • accurate following of the instruction of an electric saw;
  • information about the quality indicators of the chain;
  • acquaintance with the step size of several links.

Devices with 52 links have a distance span of 38 with grooves 1.3 mm and tires 36 cm. The saws used in the most difficult conditions are equipped with tracks from special alloys.

Chain installation: features

For a chainsaw to function properly, you need to monitor the correct operation of all its devices. The track, established by all the rules, will save you from possible injury. Installation work is carried out with the use of devices:

  • mitten;
  • screwdriver;
  • key.

Particular attention should be paid to the degree of sharpening the chain and its tension. Monitoring the working condition of the caterpillar should be regularly:

  1. To begin with, you should examine the saw tires, which are fixed with a cover on the clutch.
  2. If chain updating is required, the nuts are unscrewed. It is not allowed to remove the tension of the chain brake at one time.
  3. Brake pad moves to the side. Particularly noteworthy are the grooves that allow the tensioning of a chain part.
  4. On the left side, move the saw bar, trying to touch the main sprocket. One of the chain elements is fixed on the leading part, the shank is fixed in the tire holes.
  5. Adjusting the screw allows you to properly tighten this item. As you install the cover begin to tighten the nuts.
  6. The saw bar is put up, and the nuts are tightened to the stop.
  7. A check is made of the distance the caterpillars travel along the tire.
Reciprocating Power Saw

Saber power saw - one more model of the modern chiansaw.

You need to install the chain, checking the degree of tensioning after each installation or replacement. Inadequate fixing of the part may cause it to fall off the base of the tire and cause injury to workers.

The magnitude of the tension is checked manually, previously wearing gloves on the mittens. It is worth considering the fact that in the process of using the tool, any chain changes the length indicators. For this reason, checks should be carried out regularly.

The process of tensioning the tracks on electric saws

Any circuit on the device must be monitored. Stretching is pretty easy:

  1. The study of the fuel crane. The system must be locked.
  2. Removing the candle wiring or opening the decompression shutter.
  3. The saw plug is disconnected from the network.
  4. The row rotates according to its movement.

Understand that the caterpillar is taut wrong, you can sagging its bottom. At the top it is necessary to have a constant margin arising in the process of pulling the chain row. Excessively strong tension causes the track to stop moving.

Do not adjust the circuit if it is in working condition.

Chainsaw in a special case

For convenience and safety of storage of an electric saw are completed with special covers.

Such actions cause deformation of the tire or failure of the crankshafts. The process of tightening the tracks is carried out without the use of tools. To increase the lifespan of this part, install and tighten the element in good weather.

When working continuously with an electric saw, 2 chains should be kept in reserve.

Any chainsaw is equipped with a braking device that protects a person standing next to injury. It allows you to stop the tool before hitting the tire on the master. Such actions depend on two things:

  • braking speed;
  • connection period of the mechanism.

Starting the saw is carried out in two ways: contact and inertial. The safety of the work is ensured by the braking of the equipment with a shield; a human hand is inserted into its body. Separate brands of saws are equipped with a protective cover that protects the sharp part of the device.

How to replace the cutting part of the saw?

To properly sharpen the chain, use special tools. In this work, one should take into account the originality of the shape of the teeth themselves. Taking into account the fact that at one of the cutting parts the top edge is slightly oblique, the device should be sharpened 2-3 times.

The movements of the cutting part in contact with the ground dull it. Understand that the saw should be sharpened, you can on the formation of small chips, as well as the rapid fatigue of the master with a zero result of the work. To bring the dull foundation in order, you should prepare the tools:

Chain saw

The main part of the saw is its chain.

  • the file is flat;
  • stencil;
  • sawdust hook;
  • holder.

A file with a round base is used to account for the edge of the base of the teeth and the peculiarities of the metal at the chain links. Important for high-quality sharpening the edge will be the correct location of the file. This fixture should be held keeping the right angle in a vertical position and 30 ° in relation to the horizontal position. The holder is fixed to the tooth, and the device should be located as close as possible to it, which helps the file to be at the desired height for work.

The beginning of events is associated with the moment of fixation of the tire with smooth, unsharp movements. First you need to update the teeth, looking in one direction, followed by sharpening the opposite parts. It should be noted that these small elements must experience the same number of file moves.

The limiting depth device protects the template from erasing, it should be installed in the slotted part by overlaying additional tools. The moving mechanism is protected from grinding by a depth stop, which is not recommended to touch, and the links should not be replaced in it. Otherwise, the work of the saw may be disrupted. For this purpose, special devices are used that allow sharpening with high quality, evenly processing the teeth.

A similar operation is carried out according to the scheme:

  • chain brake mount;
  • installation of the tool according to the stencil;
  • designation of the first teeth;
  • Organization of the process.

By installing a tool for cutting wood in accordance with all requirements, you can significantly reduce costs, make the event itself safer and more comfortable. Cutting of natural breeds will be carried out without any problems.
