Using Dremel effectively:

You can use Dremel for various purposes and this is the best thing about it.

The Dremel tool has a strong handheld base and a universal head that you can use to attach several tools. When you switch on the Dremel tool, its head starts rotating and this rotating thing is used for sharpening the chainsaw.

First, try to find out a cylindrical container that is attached to the centre along with the square slab. The diameter of the cylindrical container should be similar to the one on the hole that is placed on the chainsaw blade. Ensure that the square slab should have a wooden slab on the lower side.

For effective sharpening make sure that the chisel should be attached to other slabs to ensure that the cylinder and the Dremel are placed in a good position. Put the blade in the bottle and allowed them to rest on the slab. Now try to turn on the Dremel diamond sharpener and just run it free for a while. The last thing is to check that the blade should pass through the tool while rotating it on the next tooth.

Repeat this process for every blade.

When you use the Dremel remember to use it from your right-hand side. If you want to put your Dremel in the right position, just remove and flip it. If you want to make your blade sharper, put some pressure on the edge of all the teeth of the chain against your Dremel’s blade for a small amount of time.
