How long to grind each chainsaw link while sharpening?

2 months ago

I am cutting through the trunk of an old mulberry, probably 70-75 yers old. About 18-20 inches, i think, near the base where i'm now working.

The new chain seemed to cut well for the first few cuts.

I've been using a power sharpener, but now i'm only getting a cut or two, it seems.

I'm pulling each link gently up to the grindwheel, then clamping in place, and tugging it fully into it.

I figure it's probably been 3-4 seconds on each one.

Should it be longer? or is there something ese that i should be doing?
