Electric's chain's wont sit down...
I don't know why. The bar looks fine. The tip's spin easy. But,a new chain only lasted for 20 minutes..jumped,and I cant get it to fit..always one link stays up. I tried a chain I had from an old chainsaw that burnt out years ago...and it too wouldn't sit flat into the groove. I cleaned out the bar's groove,I eyeballed it..looks flat.
I did notice that near the gear its narrower. But,that might be the design?
I just bought that new chain after the old one went very dull. It didn't jump..much!
Electrics are made so cheap. So low quality. You would think American made would mean something. Homelite...
BTW, What is more likely? I bent links on both the chains I tried...or the bar has a small bend I cant see?
