Sharpening your chainsaw chain is definitely worth it as a sharp chainsaw chain is easier to work with. It takes less effort to cut through wood and your chain will make cleaner cuts with sharp blades. A chainsaw chain can be sharpened multiple times without much of a cost.
The . 325 may be smaller and faster, but it may not be your best bet for your everyday needs. The three-eighths-inch chain is durable and lasts longer than its smaller cousin. This makes it one of the more popular switches for chainsaw users who want to get more out of their saw.
The packaging of your chainsaw blade will tell you if it is 7/32 or 5/32 etc. The pitch of the chain is usually inscribed on it and it will indicate a ¼ inch or 3/8. These pitches will need a 5/32 file.
