Guidebar Rail Dresser for squaring the rails on worn guidebars [fits Oregon, Stihl and Vallorbe bar rail dressers]. Note: The Japanese bars ie. Sugihara and Tsumura are too hard to file with this tool – hence for them use a diamond file found here or your own personal method [ours is a battery grinder with a fine flap disc]. It’s not how you do this vital area of bar maintenace – it’s that you achieve the correct results – level flat rails. Also ensure the nose sprocket does not get clogged with steel filings – grease rotate – grease rotate – grease rotate then run in very slowly to clear excess grease. Filing your bar without protecting the nose or ensuring no iron filings are now covering the bearings will likely result in nose failure.
