There are two ways to find the angle of your chain. One can either use a chain angle gauge or else use a protractor. Both are simple to use. The chain gauge is well suited for handheld chainsaws, but the protractor is better suited for larger stationary chainsaws. Here's how to use both one by one.

One way of measuring this is to put the chain on a flat surface. Place a ruler flat on the surface of the chain. Make sure the measurement is taken at the widest part of the pin. Then use this measurement to look up your chainsaw chain replacement part on the manufacturer's website.

The angle refers to the height of the chain teeth above the chain bar at the point of chain contact with the chain. chain height (in the chain bar) is determined by subtracting chain pitch from chain gauge. Pitch is the distance between chain pins. If the chain has an odd number of pins, the pitch is equal to the chain gauge. If the chain has an even number of pins, the pitch is equal to the chain gauge minus one (for example for a .325 chain, .325 pitch = .325 gauge - 1 = .324 gauge) Chain pitch measurement is the angle of the chain pin to the horizontal. It is measured in degrees, and used to determine the chain gauge. For example, a chain gauge of .325 means the chain is .325" high at the point of chain contact with the chain bar.
