Product Description

Sharpening chains has always been a two step process- until now! Pferd's great tool sharpens both the round part of the tooth and the flat depth gauge area in one easy step precise simultaneous sharpening by hand, to ensure the difference in height between depth gauge and cutting tooth is in proportion (0.8 mm or .031"). Complete with 8" round chain saw file and depth gauge file. The correct dimension depends on the size of the saw chain and the amount of wear on the teeth. Follow the instructions of the chain manufacturer.

This is a great tool for keeping your chainsaw sharp in the field with a minimum expenditure of time. You will need to get the proper Pferd tool to hold the size of round file that is right for your chain.

To keep my chainsaw in optimum shape, I find it best to sharpen the chain with each refueling. This means I want to achieve accurate sharpening very quickly.

It is necessary to 1) control depth of the round file from the top plate, 2) set the top plate filing angle (often 30 deg.), 3) take down the the height of the depth gauges, and 4) keep the length of the cutters close to equal. The Pferd tool takes care of Steps (1) to (3).

The Pferd file guide controls the depth of the round file by sliding on two teeth--very stable. Only a plate angle of 35 deg. is marked on the tool, but I did not find it hard make an adjustment to 30 deg. by eye for my chain. If you make the angle sharper than it should be, the saw will become more aggressive and somewhat harder to control. The tool incorporates a flat file to maintain the height of the depth guages as the cutters are sharpened. I found the Pferd made the depth gauges a bit lower than I wanted, so I only put the flat files in every second or third filing.

Pferd provides good instructions with the tool. It is best to use the Pferd round files rather than a substitute brand, but these are available at reasonable cost.

The tool has an excellent handle for the file making it very easy to get a long controlled repeatable stroke--much easier to control than the standard file guide.

Using this tool, it takes me roughly a second per stroke.

Purchased this to keep my wood cutting costs down. Sharpening was costing me about $8 per chain, not to mention gas. You need to read the directions and pay attention to what is being sharpened. I accidentally was filing down my links as well as the cutters because I was not looking to see what I was doing (easy to see the shiny newly ground areas of the chain if you just look). This resulted in my chain breaking loose while cutting! That was the first and last time I did that. Pay attention, take your time and this tool works fantastically!

I have a chainsaw but that doesn't make me a logger. I've struggled with consistancy when sharpening chainsaw blades and this tool has made my life easier. I'm an occasional chainsaw user but I've used it enough to know that when a blade is dull life sucks. Since using this sharpener life is good now.
