.........

On your chain, you want to set the depth gauge at 0.025" below the top plate cutting edge.  See Oregon manual above.

On new chain that is - with used chain the proper setting increase gradually as the teeth are filed back, to keep the "angle of attack" correct. That is why raker guides need to be progressive, like the Husky ones and the Carlton FOP - they take the guesswork out of it.

I dont use the husky guides either. I like the ones like shown above.

I have had guys that could  not hand sharpen a lick with just bare file before (didnt matter how much instruction I gave or showed).
I tried putting a guide like shown above on so they could test out (after I showed them in shop what to to do) and they could at least now touch up their chains in the field and keep sawing. 

I thought the rakers in pic above might need a hit too.

(P.S. - Nikko, I don't think that the Swedish roller guides will work with the chain shown in the photographs.)
The 3/8"lp roller guide will, but likely not the raker guide, because the "flags" on the tie straps are in the way.

He really needs to get some proper chain, without those "flag" bumpers.

Tried it.  Does not fit.  The bumper tie-straps prevent the roller guide from seating properly on the chain.  The low-kickback chain with the bumper drive links allow the use of the correct sized roller guides.

I like the roller guides.  They are very popular.  The advantage of the flat style file guides is that they will work with any style chain, as long as the correct size is used.

OK, I never tried one in 3/8" lp, as I don't use any such chain. Also, there are many chain models that the roller guides will work on, just not the worst kind of "safety" chain.

It's a bad term. Any chain can cut your arm off.

The chain you have is a 'low kickback' or 'reduced kickback' style.  Which, as it's real name implies, reduces the risk of one particular hazard.  It is fine and appropriate for what you are doing if properly sharpened.   Be careful with some of the guys on these sites who will swear that you need a Ferrari or Porsche just to get groceries.

There are other styles with this feature as well, and yours does look like it is getting towards the end of it's useful life. Don't know how or where you buy yours, but you current chain looks like it is Oregon 91VG. Oregon 91PX has similar low kickback properties and does not have the large bumpers SawTroll mentioned. Visit the Oregon website for more specific info on these chain types.

But I will run either of those chains if sharp.
