The practical STIHL maintenance set for cutting attachments includes a filing gauge, a check gauge for bars and chains with various pitches, and a check gauge for sprocket wear. When sharpening a chainsaw, it is important to know the pitch of the chain and sprocket, the drive link thickness, and the guide bar groove width. This is where the STIHL chain check gauge from the maintenance set for cutting attachments comes into play, as it allows you to easily check the corresponding dimensions and conditions. It is also helpful to know the correct dimensions when purchasing accessories for chainsaws. The STIHL sprocket wear check gauge makes it easy to ascertain the condition of the sprockets.
You can use the STIHL filing gauge to accurately check cutting and sharpening angles, tooth lengths and depth gauge spacing. At the same time, you can clean the groove and oil entry holes of the guide bar by using the tip at one end of the filing gauge to quickly remove sawdust and other impurities. This prevents the saw chain from running dry.The filing gauge is suitable for 1/4”, 3/8” PM, .325” and 3/8” saw chains.
