SQUARE-GROUND FILING

 

The term “square-ground filing” refers to the process of using a flat bevel file to sharpen saw chain cutters by hand. (Mostly full chisel chain)

The full chisel has square-cornered teeth, splitting wood fibres easily for fast, efficient cutting in clean softwood.

 

Square-ground filing is much more challenging than round file filing and requires different techniques.

 

Example with 45°: the chisel file angle can vary from 30° to 45°

full chisel chain sharpened with flat files is less forgiving of errors compared to round file,
it is important that the top-plate cutting angle and side-plate angle be precise.

Optimum full chisel chain performance in clean, soft wood is obtained with both angles at 50 degrees.

 

Chisel chains also have a high kick-back risk due to missing safety chain elements and are more sensitive against dirt/rocks
and are therefore suited to professional timbers and for competition (Timber Sports).

 

 

Do not forget that square-ground filing requires the use of a round file to clean out the gullet:

 

The best sellers are the double chisel and three-square bit files with precise bevel angles.
