Chain Pitch and Gauge
Chains for chainsaws are categorized by the two basic chain measurements: pitch and gauge.
Chain Cutter Types
The most popular chainsaw chain type. The chisel cutter has the fastest cutting speed and has moderate stay-sharp properties.
Only works with narrow kerf bars. Cuts fast and better than average stay-sharp properties.
For cutting wet and dirty wood. Only moderate cutting speed but stays sharp even with wet and dirty stuff.
Skiptooth chains have less cutting teeth than regular chains – normally 1/3 less. Cuts fast, mid-range stay-sharp properties and sharpens quickly.
One secret to getting saw chain to make smooth and accurate cuts is for the chain’s depth gauges to be ground to the proper depth and for them to all be even. Getting each one set to the exact height is a tedious job to do by hand.
