Before you start sharpening the saw chain, you should make some preparations.
A few preparations need to be made before the saw chain can be sharpened.
Sticking closely to specific angles and dimensions 'freehand' is extremely difficult and requires lots of practice. That's why STIHL recommends using filing aids.
Always wear protection gloves when working on or with a chain saw or cutting attachment. Chain saw teeth are sharp and can cause injury. Your STIHL Approved Dealer will be happy to answer any further questions you may have.
Sharpening your saw chains is even easier with file gauges from STIHL.
