    Spin a chain backwards and use a stone to true up the side plate of the cutters

    Trues up the side plate, each tooth is cutting the same. Otherwise you have them few rogue cutters out there grabbing more than they should

    You end up with a very smooth finish. Like mentioned, no cutters wandering out real far, potentially slowing down the cut (talkin race chain here so going for tenths/hundredths).

    There's a fine line overdoing stoning.... has happened to the best.
    I saw Dave Jewett once running a hot saw in a European Stihl Timbersports a few years back with his saw binding like crazy.

    Ya...first cutter takes me the longest. I normally do one to get it how I want it. Then the rest go quicker. I can look at the other cutter and make sure I am consistent off that. Once you do a few you get faster.
