I noticed the rails on this bar were lot harder to file by hand cleaning them up.  Then what I was used to.  Was it just me or are they?

If they make the file shiny and ruin it, they are pretty hard
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

Yes, files don't work on them. You'll just knock the teeth off the file.

Thank you all for confirming this.  I thought WTH my file must be shot and then tried a new file.

I got a 197? Jonsereds 70E in my collection in near mint condition,  all the decals are near perfect even
Its got a Tsumura bar on it with the painted letters still on it. I just put a raker file to it's rails and yup plenty hard, it's also got a nice old 3/8 Stihl semi chisel chain on it with straight verticle front depth gauges......do I keep this never used b/c just to look at or stick them on one of my work saws and enjoy it? ??? ;D

Speaking of tough hard bars the original German made 28" Stihl bar that originally came with my 1992 066 Mag Artic I'm  still running today on my 395XP. Longest running bar I ever owned.

I remember BITD at our logging camp us fallers tried these Tsumura bars and we found the bar nose joint was weak.....
A lot of broke and bent bars so we stuck to the Oregon Power Match and Windsor Speed Tips.
