Creating Tension In A Video...

As promised in an earlier post, I thought I would try and create a short video about tensioning the chain, and here it is... after the jump...

Hopefully the following video will put across in a few short minutes what I was trying to get across on my earlier post.

Please, remember to wear gloves when you're handling the chain; lift the nose of the bar up when you adjust the tension; and tighten up those side plate nuts before you run the saw up!

Well, I'm in the process of reading through your entire blog, and wanted to say thanks for the great information. I recently bought myself a Dolmar 5100 S, and have started cutting wood for a new wood burning stove I installed. Seeing you tension the chain has been VERY useful. I think I've been using a very tight chain....

Keep it up. For someone that is new to a chainsaw, there couldn't be a better resource.
