Unable to get some questions answered via your website: trying here to maybe reach other individuals.

This product has been around for several years, but there are some inconsistent, or maybe outdated, things posted about it. I am hoping that, as the distributor, you can authoritatively answer a few questions about it.

- Was there ever a version for .325 pitch chains?

- Some early photos show different diameter guide rollers: are these still available?

- The instructions mention a 'Racing Kit', and some comments refer to a 'Goofy File' version: can you clarify if these are just different rollers, or completely different tools, or . . . ?

Thank you. I recently started a thread on this, so this information is for a large number of potential users and customers as well.

Hi Philbert, Sorry for the delay, I reached out to the manufacturer to get accurate answers to your questions.


"Was there ever a version for .325 pitch chains? Yes there was a .325 version made at early stage, but never taken to the market as we found along the work of development that 3/8 fullchisel is the most common chain for pro user and speed cut users in the US

- Some early photos show different diameter guide rollers: are these still available? The "small" diameter rollers was found out at early stage to give a better top plate angle for speed cutting. The small rollers have been on the jig from day one in the US market and will most likely be so going forward.

- The instructions mention a 'Racing Kit', and some comments refer to a 'Goofy File' version: can you clarify if these are just different rollers, or completely different tools, or . . . ?” This is due to the old instruction where we wanted multiple versions of rollers to cover the need on the markets. So the so called Racing Kit is the same rollers that come with the jig from Baileys today. Spare rollers are available but none have yet asked for them in the US. About 100 blanks are still avaliable,and then no more units will be made. The market is limited and the unit is complicated to make, what make us pleased at the moment is non (zero) complains or any warranty claim. Next project is to go to the US market with our 3/8 fullchisel chain "
