    Default Scandinavian filing stand

    I don't know if you all know this trick already?
    It hasn't been brought up during any of the filing discussions and Gerry doesn't mention it in "Fundamentals", so I'd guess not.
    If you do, I'm sorry for wasting your time.

    You'll notice that I ream the bottom of the vertical cut out a little. This is not strictly neccessary, but it keeps the chain from binding against the side of the cut.
    It takes a little practise getting the height of the front piece of wood( the one holding the bar) right for the particular saw you are filing, because you can actaually cosumize the stand to fit both the saw and your own height.

    If you can't figure it out from the pictures alone, I'll explain more.

    As you can see, I have gotten old enough to need glasses for filing a saw

    Tried that before. The combi spanner hold the bar in place would sort the issues that made me stop doing it. Thanks
    To gain that which is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else.

    Good pics stig. Seen the same done but cut a 45ish degree angle cut below the saw and a pulp hook fitted in it to support the saw. Got it in a husky chainsaw manual somewhere.

    That looks like a great idea, I'll have to try it.

    How do you like the GB bar? I was thinking of getting one or two from Bailey's.

    The orange GB bars are excellent. I've been using them for 4-5 years now.
