My old blue one says Pferd. Had it about 30 yrs. Didn't use it for the first 10 yrs but liked it once I'd gotten used to it. Plain file is faster but once every 5 filings I use the Pferd.

Just do it easya nd simple and get one of the Husky roller type guides. You can get them at Lowes or most any real saw shop. I've got an original from back in the early 80's that still works fine. The biggest thing most people have a problem with isn't angle across the cutter, ie- that 30 degrees or so that is often marked on the tooth with a line. It's letting the file drop too far into the gullet of the tooth. 1/5th of the file diameter is supposed to remain above the cutting edge. That's what all the file holders do, hold the file high enough. The Husky roller type is about the easiest to use as you can see the file clearly as you use it. Then get a simple saddle type raker gauge and a flat file and you're good.

Grinders are for when you "rock" a chain or hit that steel fence post that grew into a tree 50 years ago.
