A: You will want to use a 5/32 round file.
STIHL Files come specifically designed for each pitch of saw chain, with this particular round file suited for use with a 1/4″ pitch chain. The file size is 3.2mm x 150mm.

Makita`s ROUND FILE 4 mm (5/32″) is perfect for sharpening chainsaw chains.
Chainsaw chains are sharpened with special files. While some professional loggers use square files like the ones to sharpen knives, almost all other chainsaw owners use round files for sharpening. There are three common sizes of chainsaw files: 5/32, 3/16 and 7/32.

This 7/32″ (5.5mm) file suits chainsaw chain with a pitch of 3/8″.
The right sharpening angle depends on the saw chain and the wood that you want to cut. The sharpening angle will generally be between 25° and 35° – the harder the wood, the greater the angle. To maintain the correct angle, we recommend that you use a sharpening grid or a filing gauge as an aid.

A: According to customer service: The recommended file for sharpening would be a 5/32″ round file. It is recommended that a saw chain be sharpened no more than four times.
For best results use a 4.5 mm file and a file holder or filing guide to sharpen your chain. This will ensure you always get the correct sharpening angles. Place the file holder flat on the top plate and depth gauge of the cutter.
