Title: Chain Angle Checker
Post by: Philbert on March 30, 2018, 01:34:42 pm
Inspired by a post in another forum.  A lot of guys do not need these.  And some depth gauge tools have something similar built in.  But these are very simple, and could be helpful as a training aid for new sawyers.

3/8" aluminum angle stock from a home center or hardware store ($6 for 4 feet): fits over 3/8, .325, and 3/8 low profile chains.  Cut into 4" sections with a miter / chop saw - ended up with 12, for about .50 cents each.

Yep those look like they will work.   Just a quick glance and you know.
