Saw Chain Maintenance

Note: Do not file or alter the tops of kickback-reducing bumper tie-straps or bumper drive links.

4. File from the inside of the round ground saw chain cutters to the outside. (For square ground saw chain, file from the outside of the cutter to the inside.)



5. After lowering, always file off the front corner of each depth gauge parallel to its original rounded or ramped shape. •

Wide track bent over depth gauge is only filed from top down No reshaping is necessary

Note: On many saw chains, it may be helpful to tip the depth gauge tool on end and place it in front of the working corner in order to protect the cutting surfaces when reshaping depth gauges.
