Remedies: A. File cutters back until all damage is removed. (pictures 1, 2, and 3)


B. Resharpen cutters while holding your file at the correct top plate filing angle for your saw chain. Be sure your file guide is stamped with your saw chain’s correct top plate angle. (pictures 4 and 5)


C. Either your file was too small or it was held too low. Resharpen cutters with a file of the correct size, held in the correct position. Use the correct file guide. (pictures 6 and 8)


D. Either your file was too large or it was held too high. Resharpen cutters with a file of the correct size, held in the correct position. Use the correct file guide. (pictures 7 and 9)


E. In most cases, cutters cannot be filed back enough to correct for depth gauges that are too low. Replace the saw chain. (picture 10)


F. File depth gauges down to their correct height. (picture 11)


G. File the front corners of depth gauges parallel to their original rounded or ramped shape. (picture 12)


NOTE: See pages 38 – 41 for the proper filing techniques to use when performing the remedies above.
