Someone needs to educate him about back dragging the file. I've tried the dremel stone and I still like the old hand file best.

Nope, I've never even seen it before. I used to use a file before graduating to a Dremmel but a few years ago I got an electric chain sharpener. You have to unmount the chain from the bar but once it is on the sharpener, it only takes about five minutes to finish touching up the teeth and it does a great job every time.

I'd like to have an electric sharpener too but I can't see taking the chain off to sharpen it. Might not be a bid deal but I'd prefer not to do that.

If you are still looking for a file guide .....
The pferd is excellent . If you are doing a lot of Stihl chain look at the Stihl FG1 file guides . If you are doing a lot of Oregon and Husqvarna chain ,look at the Oregon /Husq. roller guides . You have to dress the rakers separately with these guides , but they help hold the cutter angles better than the pferd . So, it's kind of a compromise . I've got all those along with the Timberline ,and the ATOP jig ,and a Stihl USG grinder . You can't go wrong with any of them as long a you take the time to learn to use them .
