WooooWeee, I didn't realize how fast this chain gets dull, tried to cut a limb and it took WAAAAY too long.  The sharpened picture doesn't do it justice, but I had to use natural light because of my limited electricity.  It cuts much better now.  Good stuff to learn.

Here are some better pictures from today.  It was earlier so the light was better.  Hopefully these scratch the itch.

Note: In my opinion I'd prefer to see slightly better pix. It does look sharp though. Certified.

This was my first attempt at sharpening a chainsaw. I think I did it right, but I fully expect to be sharpening more in the future so if I need to get better quality pictures or do a better job sharpening, that's fine too.

It’s definitely hard to get close up pictures to get in focus right!  I think these are decent though!

I used a file to sharpen.

Note: It's hard to tell from your "after" pic if it's sharp or covered with metal filings.  Could you edit your post to add another final pic?

Note: Keep going. Doesn't seem sharp enough. The final pix is crucial.
