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
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
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.
The problem with socialism is there's always
someone with less ability and more need.

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"

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.
