    I just bought a new Oregon 511A Chain saw chain sharpener and I need some help on how to sharpen a chain. I read the manual to get the right settings for my chain. I understand how to sharpen the teeth on the angle but is there anything else I should sharpen or is that it? Thanks for the help

    You can also file the rakers down just a little, but be careful you can make it cut to aggresive if you are not careful!
