Are You Ready for a STIHL?

File Guides is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Effective, Rock Solid!! This is a good tool and a necessity over hand filing without a guide. It will set the depth of the file to keep you from filing too high or low in the gullet of the tooth. The tool itself is typical Stihl quality in that it’s tough and effective, BUT in this case there is a more efficient option in the 3 in 1 tool that takes down the rakers in one operation and tool. This tool will not dress the rakers down as the teeth are filed, not the worst thing but not super efficient either. Nevertheless, this tool is simple to use, effective, light weight enough for any kit and inexpensive as things go. It helps you visually line up the angles and if you do your part with keeping the file level as you push through he tooth, it will produce razor sharp teeth!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality and leaves no room for mistakes I use the 1/4 model on my MS 180 and HT 56. The guide takes the guess work out of sharping and allows you to get your chain ‘sticky sharp.’ With 4 strokes, I have a fully sharped edge that cuts through numerous trees, limbs and branches.With this you extend the life of your blade 10 fold. I used to use an electric grinder sharper, but found that it takes too much off and shortens the life of the chain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool. This guide helps keep your gullet depth perfect. Extremely important in keeping a chain cutting like new. If you hand file, this is THE tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Quality file guide you can own. The Stihl files are the best I've ever used. Faster cutting and they leave a razor sharp edge . For the guide solid build the thumb screw tensioning rocks . Beats spring clips hands down. Keeps a firm grip on the file.
