I want to get one of these but I have no idea on what carbide cutter to get

I have a 16" Stihl 029 FarmBoss

The chain that it uses is a 26 RMC3 67

Timberline says to call first for the correct cutter but thought I'd ask here first (I hate talking on the phone )

eta- I looked closer on the Timberline site and under 'SIZING' I found it uses a 3/16" for a .325 pitch

Well what size file does that chain use?

I've got a round file but I'm not even sure if that's the correct one
I never can get a good edge with it anyway

I'm not sure I'm even using the right angle with it

Better just call them.

I just watched a video, that's a nifty little thing.

I'm not sure if it would be faster than just filing for a quick touch up during the day, but I can see it being really handy for truing the teeth back up at the end of the day.

Better just call them.

Probably the best advice
