Do you buy your ripping chain or make your own? How often do you have to sharpen, I’m finding it to be quite frequently, as in after four sides of a 12” square pine cant ~ 8’? At that point it’s still cutting, but slowing down. The pictures below are of the chain I’ve ground at zero degrees and the finish I’m getting, would 10 degrees cut faster?

I use ripping chain, I like the Granberg best because every other tooth is half width, it also holds an edge very well. I file at 10 degrees.
