The files that come with the Oregon one should work fine I would think.

Oregon part numbers for bar rail dresser 111439. The files are part numbers for the coarse 111588 and for the fine 111589. Only problem I see is that they are only available in six packs, Oregon say the coarse are for harvester bars and the fine are for saw bars, there prices in there catalog are $38 for the dresser coarse files are $143 and fine are $70. Just remember the files are in six packs. I am sure one of the Oregon dealers on here could give a better price as these are retail prices

jmester - I believe that diagram showing the angled file for deburring the sides is really just showing breaking the corner after deburring it.  You don't need to have a sharp corner on the outside edge (but neither do you want to take a whole lot of meat off the corner).

Top-to-bottom comparison of an Oregon bar dressing tool, a $5 eBay clone, and a Pferd tool.
The parts on the clone are interchangeable with the Oregon, although, the plastic feels softer, and I can't tell yet about the file quality.
The difference in the size and coarseness of the Pferd tool are clearly evident.

My proposed design for a home-built file holder (on my project list), using hardwood scraps, and a hardware store file cut to size with a Dremel tool cut-off wheel.

Was just lurking on AS and there's a 3 page thread on a bent Stihl ES 28" bar.
Could someone here please post on there suggesting  hammering it back straight with a hammer and shim on a heavy flat surface anvil.
Stupidity seems to rule on that site :D reason I never want to join. Hahaha

So which do you find to work the best squaring back up and getting rid of the burrs?
