Instructions for a Timber Tuff Chain Sharpener

The Timber Tuff chain-saw sharpener is designed to sharpen the edges of saw chains that have a pitch between a 1/4 inch and 3/4 inch. The Timber Tuff sharpener can be mounted to any surface with its three-screw mounting system, which makes it easy and convenient to store and use. Sharpen your saw chains regularly so that each time you use your chain saw, it cuts quickly and without any jerks because of dull areas on the blade.

Sharpening the chain on your saw will increase its cutting power.

Mounting to Work Bench

Step 1

Place the Timber Tuff sharpener's base on the edge of a workbench.

Step 2

Align the stop located halfway through the sharpener's base with the edge of the work bench.

Step 3

Attach the base to the work bench using three screws and a drill. There are three screw holes located in the sharpener's base to be used in this mounting.

Step 4

Grinding the Chain

Step 11

Set the guides to the sharpening angle needed for the chain being used. This information can be found on the chain's original packaging.

Step 12

Place the chain between the guides with a tooth aligned against the stop.

Step 15

Rotate the feed screw to increase or decrease the speed at which the chain is fed through. The feed screw is located on the left end of the guides.

Step 16

Place the top plate angle and the vise angle to the corresponding angle matching the guides' angle. The corresponding top plate and vise angle can be found on the chain's original packaging.

Step 17

Rotate the grinding disc till it touches the first chain tooth.

Step 18

Set the grinding depth by rotating the knob on the right of the grinding disc.

Step 19

Push the power button to "On."

Step 20

Push the grinding disc carefully down on the tooth, using the handle.

Step 21

Raise the grinding disc when the disc reaches the grinding depth.

Step 22

Feed the chain through the guides and sharpen each tooth.

Step 23

Sharpen the teeth in the opposite direction by flipping the chain's direction in the guides.
