Re: Anybody Hone Their Chains?

I once honed my top and sideplate angles with a Japanese Gold waterstone slip , it's still laying in my tool chest untouched for the last 30 years. It worked OK but only if I got the chrome layer off both sides, other wise it's useless with the searated  chrome edge.

Too much trouble for a few gains and all your left with is a weak edge which can lose you a race when you hit the first knot.
