9 Tips To Keep Your Ice Sculpting Chainsaw In Working Order

Hand tools to power tools; sculptors use dozens of devices to create ice sculptures.

 

As time goes by and tools are used they encounter the normal wear and tear, therefore, caring for those tools is of the utmost importance.

 

It is much cheaper to maintain a tool than replace it, especially power tools.

 

One of the most used and essential power tools is the chainsaw.

 

From carving off huge chunks of ice to creating feathers on an angel’s wings the chainsaw is very versatile.

 

Here we have listed tips on how to keep your chainsaw in good working order:

 

  • There are electric chainsaws and gas powered chainsaws, whatever the power source of your saw be sure to inspect before each use.

 

  • For electric chainsaws always check for a cut or frayed cords and wiring.

 

  • Make sure to use the correct gasoline and oil mixture for gas powered model chainsaws.

 

  • For all model chainsaws, make sure to check for loose bolts and screws.

 

  • Always inspect your chain for bent or broken link, dullness, and broken teeth.

 

  • Replace your chain whenever you find defects, not only for precision in your work but also for your safety as “kickbacks” can cause serious injury.

 

  • Before storing your chainsaw make sure to inspect again and replace any broken parts.

 

  • For gas powered chainsaws, use a fuel stabilizer with fresh fuel to prevent clogging the carburetor.

Keep Your Display In Top Shape

Keep Your Display In Top Shape

Creating an ice sculpture takes a lot of time and hard work so it’s only natural to want to show it off once it’s done. To give your work of art its “do” you would want to place it on a display specifically for ice sculptures.

 

Yet, like everything else, these displays don’t last forever. This means that sometimes parts need to be replaced and items need to be purchased to keep your display at its optimum level.

 

That’s why it is important to be aware of what hardware you may need to maintain a professional display.

 

Make The Ultimate Display

 

It isn’t uncommon that displays need to be plugged in. Whether it is for lighting the sculpture or rotating it, ensure it doesn’t lose power. It would be smart to invest in an overload protector for the plug.

 

Another common issue is that every machine has screws that become worn, stripped or loose after a great deal of use. That’s why it is important to have replacement screws on hand to make sure when they need to be changed, your display won’t break apart at the wrong time and ruin your sculpture.

 

It would also be smart to purchase extra replacement hardware for plastic trays like nuts and washers to keep parts from shifting or being damaged.

 

Ice Crafters has a wide variety of replacement parts and items that will help keep your ice sculpture display look professional. Hardware can break; when they need replacement make sure you get the right parts to keep your work on display.
