Well oregon has 6 different ones. 025, 030, 040, 050, 060, and 070. I thought you use same one too.

I see what you are saying now setting raker heights. I like 025 so I use 025. Then if I want 030 I use 030.  Have them up to  040. Never used 040 after trying one like that years ago.

I have one that is adjustable too, for doing 018 022 033 etc type stuff.

I use the Carlton File-O-Plate for chain I'm working on. They are chain specific. Also use the one on the Husky roller guide. Like the Carlton best.

I forgot all about those chain specific ones. 

 I tried a carlton one once. Gave away after that.  I just use the universal ones.

 Heck most that come in dont even know about rakers on their chain and never touch them.

I set a straight edge across two teeth and see what the distance to the raker is. . . .

I get it to .025" and I make all the other rakers look the same.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".

Most guys use .025 or .030.  There are some double ended depth gauge tools that have both.  I like separate gauge tools so that I don't confuse the ends and screw up.  Or you can do what 660magnum mentioned: use a straight edge and feeler gauges to get an almost unlimited range of measurements.
