Good in the forest; instrauctions could be better
I like this tool when I am out in the forest and have to trim che chain. The tool is small and just needs a file to sharpen the teeth. and a second flat for the depth gauge.Good is that the depth can be adjusted according to the wood I am cutting, but the bad thing are the instructions on the package. This is the reason why I took off one star.Here I would encourage Husqvarna to be more clear.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've used saws nearly 40 years logging, sawmilling,farming , and now mostly cutting firewood and cleaning fence lines. I've tried most guides over the years and found they slowed the sharpening process. Now my sight is not as sharp and I have to wear glasses to file. This guide helps maintain the correct position of the file and handle to maintain the cutters easier than anything I've tried. It is the only guide that speeds up the job while filing the cutter and drags correctly.

One of the best portable file guides out there
I have used file guides from Stihl, Oregon, Granberg, and Husqvarna. For a "field" guide, the Husqvarna guide is my favorite. It is the easiest to maintain the proper angle throughout the entire stroke of the file, gives the best view of the tooth to file contact, and the progressive depth gauge/raker guide saves time over the others by not requiring you to re-profile the depth gauges after setting them.This file guide will NOT work with safety chain which has the large bumpers on the tie straps.I see some claiming difficulty in figuring out how these work, and complaints of a lack of instructions. While I agree that the instructions could be better, I will say that anybody with the most basic understanding of filing angles and chain geometry should be able to figure this tool out in less than two minutes. If it takes you longer, do yourself a favor and obtain training in proper cutter geometry. If you are unwilling to do this, please take your chains to a saw shop to be professionally sharpened. File guides are not a crutch for a lack of knowledge in chain sharpening any more than anti-lock brakes are supposed to be a crutch for poor driving.It takes a man to acknowledge his shortcomings and not make excuses for them.

Combi gauges for chain sharpening
I have replaced both clamp-on file guides and clamp-on bar guides with combi-gauges when sharpening my saw chain both in the field and workshop. These little gauges are quicker and easier to use, provided you have basic chain sharpening skills. I use my saws on Australian hard wood.The instructions, on the reverse of the packaging, are obvious, and the stamped arrows within the gauge body mean you position it correctly each time.With these gauges (several to suit different gauge chains) I now use less strokes per cutter to sharpen and I end up with better results.If you are basically competent enough to sharpen a saw chain without a guide, but are a little bit rough (angles vary a bit), try these gauges to help. You'll end up with a saw chain that works very well.I generally run Oregon and Stihl chains on Echo and Stihl powerheads.

This support tool, offered to the user for chain sharpening and cut depth filing, is a mystery tool. Next to impossible to figure out how it should be used. What's worse is that the company has no one who can offer any instruction. In fact, there are no instructions. It's a waste of time trying to get any help, so don't bother......
Merchant response: The guage set is confusing but well worth the effort to learn. The chains life will be extended with proper sharpening. Please check out the instructions on our website.

Incomprehensible depth gauge
Combination sharpening/depth gauge tool works fine for sharpening. It is useless as a depth gauge because NO ONE can figure out how to use it. The file kit instructions on how to use it are literally two graphics that make no sense (I have an engineering degree and I fly jets for a living. I'm no dummy). I understand the concept. The goal is filing the tooth (not the cutting tooth, but the depth tooth) down to the recommended 0.025" so you don't take too big or small a bite of wood with each pass of that tooth. You're supposed to be able to use this gauge to measure that distance and file down (with the incl. flat file) any part of the depth tooth that sticks up through the gauge (and ostensibly would decrease that 0.025" distance). But here's the problem. Husqvarna does not show you how to position the tool. It's a friggin mystery and, like the gentleman before me, it's just wasting my time figuring it out. Even my dealer didn't know how to use it! Husqvarna, listen up. You need to post some better instructions or a video and quit wasting our time please. Otherwise, my next saw is a Stihl.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Need to buy a chain in order to good instructions
I bought a new chain along with this combination guide/gauge. The instructions that came with the new chain was helpful. The instructions with the guide were not helpful. It might be worth buying an extra chain if you are having difficulties using the depth gauge or even better. Husqvarna could produce a video showing how to sharpen a chain and check depth.

Absolutely useless graphic instructions in my opinion. Can't determine how to use the depth gauge at all for the chain that came with my Husqvarva 435. Basically you are left to figure this thing out if you can. I can't. No online videos or instructions either. Bummer. The cutter guide works fine. The depth guide is just a puzzling time killer.
