(3) 25” 3/8 .05 RS converted to sqr/sqr , a few 20” and 18” and probably 12 picco from 14-16” coverted to square ... I’ll give a count when I get home tonight and maybe we can work something out .. thanks !

If someone ships me a saw, it's usually around 40 and change. If I ship that same saw back, over 80.
I would find some one closer that does not get gouged.

For heavens sake, just buy a square file and have at it! &#55358;&#56596;&#55357;&#56900;
Been doing it for years, takes much less time than shipping crap here and there. Also square grind needs a lot of touching up!

I do have a file to sharpen sqr/sqr chain ... however nothin cuts like silvey ground sqr/sqr chain - once the geometry is dead-nuts via the grinder I get a few touch ups with the file ... rinse and repeat ... my best option wood be to spend 1g on a simington grinder but I’m too cheep :)

Just buy a new simington and be done with it. If I hadnt bought my silvey local used I would have went with it.

I hand filed square and also had the ole silvey that the simington approved on over the years.

I was doing square local for folks but there was no $ in it. So I sold it to a friend later for $550 and now he has 2.
