Hey 45/70 fan, thanks a ton. Today I went to menards, tsc and harbor frt and no body had one or even said what the dia. was. I will go to Home Depot tomorrow, thanks again.

They're hard to find, there are chain saw files sold online as 3/8", but they measure .366"-.370" and come by the dozen. The ******* files I've bought are tapered from about .400" to well under .375", so there really is no .375" file that I've ever found, easiest thing to do is just use the common ******* file, but only the section that's ~.375", the rest of it is too big or too small.

Just got back from home depot with the file just checked it with a lug hook and it seems to be right. it does taper at the end but most of it seems to be the correct size. it will be easy enough to just use the 3/8s portion. Btw at no place on the package does it give a dia. It will work! thanks guys.

It'll work, that's what I used before I got a mini-mill, worked pretty good in a chain saw sharpening tool.

Yes Tim, that solves the biggest issue I have is getting the hook filed square with the hinge pin. I appreciate your help.

There are both double cut and single cut round files listed 3/8ths" X 10"
