Oregon File Guide 31690

November 23, 2006
from CT
I purchased many different chain saw sharpening tools in the past and the Oregon File Guide has surpassed all of them in the field in sharpening chainsaw chain back to being reliable cutters as they were returned to like new again in performance. You just can't beat this tool for sharpening your chainsaw. I first take the correct file size and open up the center of the chain tooth. Then i take the file guide with the correct size file clamped in it and sharpen the very top edge to a razor sharpeness. I sharpen it until the dull corner is gone from the chain. Uisng this guide to sharpen your saw chains will add a lot of extra life to your chains too mainly because it only takes off a little material at a time rather than a grinder which removes a lot of material. The biggest advantage it can be done in the field where you are using your chainsaw too thus saving you down time too. I cut firewood professionally and this is what i used to keep my saw chain like new ready to cut anytime, anywhere.
