I was sharpening chains today and had a few with "folded" rakers. I never liked that style and decided to do something about it. I took them to the belt grinder and removed the folded over part. What remained was very much like a standard raker. I sharpened the chains and filed the rakers, job done. I'll see how they cut tomorrow.
