Here is a photo of the other side that I just received from the owner, along with his comment below.

"If you notice on the coarse side the screw holes are not chamfered to accept the heads. This could indicate that this side was not intended for use. I didn't catch this before."

    O.K. So someone grabbed a double-sided file, and modified it to make this.
    If the coarse side were also usable, It would suggest that wood was the target material, but with the one (fine) side only usable, I think that it is for metal.
    But it is likely for metal attached to wood, so the other suggestion of for ski edges might make sense. I don't think that a file for a chain saw bar would benefit from the wood guide, so I discount that one.
    Thanks,         DoN.

Good god!
How big a nincompoop do you have to be to need a fancy gizmo to measure your dry spaghetti.

Oh, I knew I'd seen that thing before. My wife almost ordered one recently. Cheapsake Ed stopped her. <g>
There are diet formulas that base consumption on the cross-section area of spaghetti you use. That was my wife's interest. But we have a food scale, which is the alternate way to do it.

I use cross-sectional area, but I just hold it between my thumb and forefinger and eyeball it. It's too bad this thing doesn't work so well because my Mk1 eyeball isn't so repeatable and so we often end up with too much spaghetti.

She'd probably get along with Hack's grandmother.

She got along with a lot of people. I have no idea who you're talking about, but then, neither do you.

Do you have a relationship with Hawke's grandmother or something? I've never even met her, myself.

Fruufru!!! Several spaghetti makers _print_ the measuring circles on the box.
*EASILY* reproduced in something more durable (like "wood" -- to stray back 'on topic' :) with, say, some appropriately sized forstner/auger/speed bits.
It's been a while since I looked at one, and I don't have any on hand right now, but, as I recall, they're all _real_ close to a 1/16" multiple for the diameter.

    Look at it encrypted with rot-13 (which should be in your newsreader, as it is a (very) minimal encryption once commonly used to hide spoilers). Apply it twice and you are back to the original text. Certain common words are occasionally posted in rot13 on the assumption that people have learned to recognize them. :-)
    If you need to do it manually -- replace each letter with the letter 13 later in the alphabet -- folding it to two copies to deal with things which start past the 13th letter.
    And the "word" is misspelled anyway -- it should be "Furrfu"
    Enjoy,         DoN.

I knew all that already. What I wanted to find out is why the OP used that specific misspelling of that word, as I find it very unlikely he misspelled it like that if he knew where it actually comes from.
