Not just for chain saws anymore
I recently bought this file handle at a store that handles Husqvarna products. However, I didn't buy it to use with a chain saw file.
I am an artist involved in making jewelry and teaching jewelry making in the U.S. and around the world. Files made for jewelry making never come with a handle - even the most expensive and finest made. Additionally, jeweler's use many "needle" files which have a tang/handle that is round and about 1/8" in diameter which makes them both difficult to hold and manipulate. We are constantly looking for suitable handles for our files and in my travels I have never seen a handle like this. I thought I would give it a try and immediately found that it works perfectly and flawlessly for virtually every file I use (and that's a lot). The ergonomics of the handle are just right and the light weight makes it easy to use for long periods - a common occurrence in my field.
