Bridges, you can buy a little tool that holds a round file and a flat file togather , it files your depth gauges and your cutters at the same time, this will help you get started fileing freehand. I hate to say this since im a stihl man but you should be able to get one of these at any husky saw dealer hope this helps.
There is much to know.The first is not all
shops that do this really know how to.
I do afair job.But have found a man that really knows
how.3-5 dollars and takes all the work out of
usin the saw.In fact I enjoy just watching it
the little flat bar and file thing can be had for about seven bucks at home depot. but I'd go to the dealer and ask for one. they are handy because you don't have to remove the chain to have it sharpened.
I run the file over the chain after every 2 or 3 tank fulls of gas. There's nothing like a nice sharp chain! Also be careful not to touch the ground while cutting. This will dull the chain very quickly.
