My impression is that, when it comes to the home use type gas chain saws,
the new chain blade seems to last quite awhile. Then, once it goes dull,
and you get it sharpened, it cuts great for a few whacks, then is dull
again, almost immediately.
If this indeed is the case at large, then maybe the answer is simply to have
a big roll of chain blade handy. Make up a new blade each time the old one
dulls, and discard the old one.
For me, it isn't the money so much as it is I really can't afford for my
chain to go dull quickly. I need a bit more longevity out of whatever I'm
using to cut with.
Is having a roll and chain breaker stuff handy a good way to go to avoid
short life spans of resharpened blades.
