Good news is she likes being warm in the winter. On top of that she was a **** bird to her mother last night so today she wasn’t given a choice for her day. Dad don’t play the lippy back talk game.

Good man. Teach'em right.

So, remember that unknown wood I asked about last weekend? I split some today. It smells awesome, sort of sweet. Here's the splits:

And, here is the honey locust and sugar maple I cut up last weekend with the 241 and 346xp. It's a little wet, so I'll let it dry until next winter. Wife and daughter were kind enough to stack for me while I split.

So, I think I have wheat/gluten sensitivity. Certain breads, pizza crust, etc. makes me feel like crap.

On the weekends, it's almost tradition that my wife makes pancakes. Last weekend she started using Spelt flour from the local amish/mennonite store, and it's awesome! The bourbon barrel aged maple syrup from Costco is legit too.

Here's how my chains end up... critique away. Hasn't seen a grinder in quite a wile. Keep thinking about taking the rakers down a hair more but it cuts well...

Looks fine.
Which saw are you running that on and what length bar. Seeing the saws in your signature they all look as though they should be able to pull an aggressive chain well, so yes the rakers could be taken down a good bit. The big sign to me is the shine on top of the rakers.
The cutter on the left in the first picture shows the top plate angle being less than the witness mark angle, while the other cutter looks the same as the witness make. Most likely you file a little different from side to side as most of us do, just being aware of it will help you correct it without having to put it on the grinder to even the angles all out. In the second picture it appears the gullet could be cleaned out a little, but as philbert was saying the pictures make it hard to tell for sure. When cleaning the gullet out I do not clean it out all the way to the back(where the file you sharpen with stops) unless the file I'm sharpening with will rust on the gullet when sharpening, or it's a chain I plan on using a husky roller guide on. If you remove the gullet all the way to the back then you have to hold the file up on the bottom of the top plate and that slows me down when freehand filing without the roller guide. Using the roller guide works very well for holding the file up but it's much slower than freehand filing without the guide.
All that being said if it gets your wood cut safely and you saw isn't racing and the filter isn't constantly covered in fines/it's throwing nice chips, then you'll be just fine :).
