I was visiting my uncle the other day and I told him how I bought a used Stihl chainsaw cheap and rebuilt it. He said he just threw out his Stihl chainsaw. He said I could have it. We went to his shed and grabbed it out of the trash bin and threw it in my car. It is a 025, plastic everywhere, no adjustable high speed jet, and a weird chain. The only thing I could find wrong with the saw was the "contact spring" was underneath the switch shaft instead of above it. It would not come out of half choke unless you monkeyed with it. It looks to me like the chain is sharpened wrong and he hit a nail or something with it. I never saw a chain with that weird humped thing on the link between cutters and that hump gets in the way when I tried to use my 2 in 1 sharpener. Does anyone know what kind of .325 chain this is and what the easiest way to sharpen it is?
