Q. I just had my chainsaw chain professionally sharpened. I reinstalled the chain on my saw and went to cut wood. After cutting through the bark, the chain stopped cutting. What is wrong?
A. The chain may be on backwards. The chain turns clockwise on the bar. Check to see if the cutters are pointing away from you when they are on the top of the bar and towards you when they are on the bottom of the bar. If not, simply turn the chain around.
