Chain gauge is the thickness of the chain. It should fit the groove in the bar.

I need a replacement chain for a mcculloch em450s. Will any chain 16" chain work or do I need a specific one?

You need to know the pitch the gauge and the drive link count to get the correct chain for any saw, on this saw it will most likly be a 3/8 pitch a 050 gauge all you need is the drive link count which will probably be 56 for a 16"

What size file to sharpen rcs1835 chain

For a standard 3/8 inch chain pitch you would use an 11/64 round file.
There are standard cut files and smooth cut files.

A standard cut file offers the fastest removal rate per stroke and is the most widely preferred chainsaw file. The aggressive tooth pattern of the file yields maximum performance in a minimal amount of time.

a smooth cut file is recommended for those who maintain there chain on a very frequent basis. It removes less metal per stroke, which will extend the life of the chain. Because it's a finer cut file, a skilled user can achieve a sharper tooth.

You will also need a flat depth gauge file. A depth gauge file is a flat file with two round uncut edges.This allows for the correct adjustment of depth gauges, prevents gouging and preserves saw chain life.

Good luck with your saw.

Best way to sharpen ms 250 c stihl chain

I can't show you pictures but I can try to explain. Tighten the chain on the saw to the normal working tension. If possible put your saw in a vice with the vice jaws clamped on the bar in a way that allows free movement of the chain around the bar when the chain brake is off. work your way around the chain to find the shortest tooth on the chain. Sharpen that tooth by using a file (4.8mm for the normal chain on that saw). You should work at 30 degrees across the face of the tooth.The spec says you should also angle the sharpening at 5 degrees from horizontal but if you have the chain at normal tension then the movement of the chain in the bar while sharpening is likely to give you about 5 degrees anyway - so just work horizontally and you won't have a problem. You only need gentle pressure pressing back towards the engine of the saw and enough strokes to get the surface of the tooth free of any pits, chips and rounded edges. When finished mark that tooth - I use a felt pen so it is easy to see. Do the same for every other tooth but to ensure the saw cuts straight (and does not give you curved cuts) it is essential that every tooth is sharpened to the same size as the shortest (use a measuring gauge if necessary). When you have been all the way round on all teeth then you need to adjust the depth gauges on the chain links. If you don't then the saw will probably only produce fine dust and not nice cut wood chips. With a flat file and depth gauge tool place the tool along the teeth pulled back against one. Through the gauge fingers you will see the chain depth limiter and this needs to be filed down to the level of the gauge tool. If you start the process at the tooth you marked earlier you will easily see when you have worked all the way around. Your chain should now be sharp. Before using it it is advisable to remove the chain from the saw and clean any filings out of the chain and bar to avoid them causing unnecessary wear. Good luck.

Can I fit a 1.3 mm bar and chain to my Bosch AK40-19s chainsaw

as long as the pitch of the chain is the same as the nose wheel of the bar, then the gauge does not matter as you are fitting a bar and chain with 1.3 gauge.

What is the chain gauge for current Stihl chainsaws ( width of bar slot)

There is no one gauge that is common to all new Stihl saws. Gauge is completely dependent on the bar chosen.

The standards are 0.043, 0.050, 0.053. 0.058, 0.063, 0.080.

You should be able to find your chain gauge on the bar. Even if the paint is worn away, you should see the impression from the stamping. If all else fails, take the chain into a Stihl shop and they will have no problem finding what you need.

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.
