Chainsaw Guide

Whilst munching our sandwiches at lunchtime today, I noticed Craig sharpening the chainsaw manually with an implement I'd never seen before, which turned out to be a small, tubular file enclosed within a kind of guide contraption.

We have a small chainsaw here, at home; so this interested me. Of course chainsaws must be razor-sharp, or else they are practically useless.

I intend to buy one of these guides, which have markings for the appropriate angle for filing. McMaster's hardware store in Church Lane, Belfast, was mentioned as being a likely supplier.
