CLP Tech Tips 

  Round Filing
Chain filing can make or break you in many ways. Dull or poorly filed saws are inefficient and dangerous. They wear out quicker, and so do you if you try to force them to work. They can also create reactive forces that cause the saw to kickback. A properly filed chain cuts better, making the saw easier to handle and safer to operate. It also lets you perform techniques such as the Bore Cut, an important part of the Game of Logging and CLP felling method.

Below is a diagram that you can use as a guide in many round filing applications. However, check with the manufacturer's specification for the proper tools, angles and depths for filing.
