    I think the makers assume you know how to sharpen a chain since the instructions are useless. The chainsaw instructions were little better, but since the kit only assembles in one way and there is only one way to file, I worked it out quickly. Fabulous results. The chain is once again very sharp.

    Supposed to be for the chain on my saw, but is a Black & Decker tool. The instructions are very vague,and the angle plate does not fit my saw chain. I used the file, with the chain on the saw and approximated the cutting angles, chain o.k now. Don't waste your money on this kit, buy a couple of "rat tail' files and google the sharpening technique!
