What is the Ryobi expand-it chainsaw chain sharpening angle for the 10 inch blade?

This is what I did. I took my saw to a lawn and garden store that sells chainsaws. I purchased a file and a file guide made for my size chain. It is easy. Just a few strokes with the round file on the teeth and a few strokes on the rackers and it is good to go.

Chain file sharpening size

For the normal size chain you use a 5.2mm round file. Smaller chains for top handles take a 4mm round file.

There are six different chains with different pitches that can be used on this saw. 1/4, 3/8 PMN, and 3/8 P use a 5/32" file; 0.325 uses a 3/16" file; 3/8 uses a 13/64" file; and 0.404 chain uses a 7/32 file. The pitch is ususally stamped on the side of the chain teeth.

Looking for sharping stone from efco fl64 /8 chain

There are multiple chain sizes 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/32", 7/32" and 3/8" chains so the /8 chain number has me guessing. After the qurestions below, here is my best guess.

Also is this for a chain grinder?" or

Are you looking of a hand held type stone?

Aluminum Oxide Chainsaw Sharpening Grinding Stone
or Ceramic stone?

I will assume that your looking for aluminum oxide stones at this time.

This is wide selection of sharpening stones.

You can also use hand held chain sharpening files of the same size that have shapening angles marked on the file set fixture.

Hopefully you have a sharpening guide that will keep your angles correct while shapening.

A safety note: Improperly sharpened chainsaw blades can be very dangerous to the user.

Thanks for using FixYa.

What size file do i use for a Ryobi chainsaw model PCN4545 to sharpen the chain

The standard chain file should fit it. It is about 3/16 dia. I found the dremel to work 10 times better, they have a little stone bit just for chains. Eventually, you have to take it in for sharpening, it will set all the teeth the same.

I bought a new chain to replace the poor one that comes with MY new 18" gas chain saw....but it does not fit into the groove on the bar....the new chain is too wide...the length is perfect though....does...

The difference is the gauge of the chain.The chain comes in .050, .058, and .063 gauge. I am sure that Ryobi does not offer but one gauge bar. This is just one of the many problems of dealing with the box stores rather than a full service qualified dealer. If you can find one in your area, patronize them. Not just when the box store lets you down but for everything. These type dealers are disappearing and are not being replaced and soon they will all be gone. If you can not find one in your area contact southern supply company at 205-833-2525 or email them at and I feel sure Jason or someone there can help you.
