They are a single bevel file. One edge does left hand cutters and the other edge does right hand cutters. Same side up.

IIRC they are Vallorbe's

Thats what come with it. But you can use the norm even though thicker.

You can make the rollers to get whatever angles your wanting with the tools you have.

Not all shown comes with it when sold.  I got my stuff from Goran himself.

Guy from Sandusky used 6 sided bevel files and supplied rollers to make faster cant chains then me.   

I liked the files for my uses, some didnt though.


2 on right are like what come with atop guide.  Stihl dealer in Ashland sold them before the guide was out.  Files are thinner thickness.




Closest 2.




2 on right

If you buy a new Atop it doesn't come with all those extra diameter rollers anymore.

Thks guys. I've modified a few of the Stihl FG guides to do race chains and they work fairly well. Been interested in trying out the the ATOP for a while, wasn't sure if a "normal" chisel file would work or if it used a proprietary file.  Does Goran sell em direct?

He is a member here and I can get you email if needed. ;) 

Hmmmm maybe he wasnt a member back in 2011, either that I dont remember user name.

Still have email.

I remember him saying he had sold rights in USA to Baileys for the square version.   Cutters Choice had them to the goofy version that came out before square.

I ran both chains done by Goran and I didnt care for the goofy version myself.
