Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 rakers when sharpening your chains. This tool is a must-have to ensure the correct amount is filed off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic but effective tool I’m not sure how much more they could pack into this small package. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of Chainsaw sharpening tools. I use mine to clean the bar and file the rakers when the shop sharpens the teeth (they never lower the rakers and it won’t cut as fast). Anyway, the tool is good and well worth the price, BUT now there is the 3 in 1 filing system that cuts the time down by filing the tooth and the rakers in the same operation. This tool is good and will serve you well but in the same way the computer is an improvement in efficiency over the abicus for calculating numbers the 3 in 1 tool is that much more efficient for filing your chain. You can get there both ways but one is much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw The easy start is great. I ruined my old saw when I put regular gas in it. My friend had an easy start saw. I got to use it and loved. When I replaced my old one I purchased the easy start. It has plenty of power and it is easy to use. Love it and I would recommend it perspective buyers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 confidence in the user to utilize this and other Stihl products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 )

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs instructions I got this tool as part of a Stihl sharpening kit. The problem is that are no instructions for how to use it. In particular, I'd like to know how raker depth gauge is supposed to be used.
