    i quit using my electric chain grinder
    i bought one for my 3/8 chain and tried using the 2n1 and i took my chain grinder off the bench and will get rid of it soon . the 2n1 sharpens a chain in less than 5 minutes without the heat the grinder puts on the cutters . i have since then bought one for my 325 chain . i also have the timberline sharpener and the granberg file n guide and prefer the 2n1 over all the others

    great tool
    I am the owner of a tree service and an instructor for chainsaw safety and tree felling for different government agencies. This is the only filing system we use and I push this on friends in the trade. I sharpened a 24" full comp chain, both sides, 3 swipes per tooth in 3min 58sec and the saw ripped. Now I only have to carry one extra chain per saw because I can file to like new faster than changing the chain. Plus I don't have to take a dull chain back to the shop. AND even the absolute ... read more greenest worker can get a great edge.

    Strong STIHL for Razor Sharp Teeth
    I’m not sure what hey have done at STIHL to make the files but they seem to cut better than the ones ya pick up in the box store. They sharpen quicker and last a bit longer in my experience. I’m using the files on .375 RS & PM & PMM chains. They work great on all of them! A bonus is hey drop right into my 2 in 1 kit as well!! Worth the extra money!

    This my BACK-UP Pack!
    Great quality for a great price. I keep a pack of these with my Saw Sharpening Kit. Perfect quantity to get you through the season. A 10-pack would end up rusting on you!

    Works as it should.
    File fits nice. File stays put. Good ergonomics. Recommended over using a file without a handle.

    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, ... read more 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!!

    Keeps You Honest With Your Angles !
    This tool really eases your ability to correctly file your chain. Uniformity is everything when seeking a proper cut. It definitely aids in a straight cut which is critical when felling larger-diameter trees.

    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.

    file gauge
    The top plate angle and drag depth are pretty self explanatory. The side plate angle is what has me puzzled. I have sighted this with a brand new chain according to the chain spec and still don't really understand how to read the angle on the saw. I am guessing that four out of five ain't bad. 1. top plate angle (check# 2. drag depth #check# 3. bar groove depth #check# 4. bar groove cleaner #check# 5. side plate angle reading # x )

    Quality Made Stihl Tool
    I am a novice. The Depth Gauge Tool came in the pouch with the flat file and round file with guide bar. I'm able to follow the instructions, however I believe that a video should be created by Stihl to demonstrate to the novice all the wonderful features this tool has and how to use them. Safety is tantamount to the health of the arborist and forestry industry. Understanding the how and why of this tool to convince the owner/user to replace/service a saw chain in a timely manner will boost ... read more confidence in the user to utilize this and other Stihl products.

    A MUST-HAVE to Keep Your Guide Bar Channel CLEAN !
    In some ways this inexpensive tool is just as valuable as your Guide Bar. You should carry it in your saw's Tool Pouch & clean out the oiling channel every time you pull the Chain off. The newer Bars have inadequate diameter oiling holes, resulting in a "dry Bar" condition regardless of how much you turn-up the Oil Delivery setting. A dirty channel will only exacerbate that problem! And, a screwdriver will not reach down to the bottom of the channel. Most shops tend to forget to file the ... read more rakers when sharpening your chains. This tool is a must-have to ensure the correct amount is filed off.

    raker gauge is spot on
    Bought this tool in 3/8,.325,3/8 picco for each of my saws. The hard setting on the raker gauge is spot on for me on oak, have not used the soft side of the guage. This is a high quality tool made well. Used it a lot and can still read the words soft and hard on the raker guage. Would highly recommend this to any one who hand files their saw chain.
