Of course you NEVER file towards the sprocket end of a chainsaw bar!!! Hope that was just an oversight?

They need a chain saw bar that lets the chain run inside the bar or either one that has a chain that will run over the side lips of the bar and there would be no problem running a chain i guess that way and it would wear the bar evenly.
