Dang Buckskin, I got this jig i clamp on the blade and file the chain with.  Works for me.

But, I gotta admit that a brand spanking new chain is fun to break in.  Wink

I have one of those as well, Oregon brand, that I bought when I bought my first ever owned-by-me saw many years ago.
I think maybe it is still around here somewhere; I never threw anything away in my life; I do have a useless excuse of a brother that causes things to disappear though.

As for sharpening, I have decided on the same theory with my band-mill blades as well.
New ones are around twenty bucks.
The sharpen shop guy was charging nine bucks to sharpen one.
Run a new blade until it begins to dull; take it to the sharpen guy; go back to the sharpen guy to pick it up; it cuts okay for a while; metal fatigue has already caused cracks to develop in the gullets; before it gets dull the second time, it breaks at speed, whipping out like a mile-long sling-blade and taking out an expensive belt in the process.
I decided there was no future in that; it makes about as much sense as rotating your tires.

Well I can't add much here. Poulan used to make good saws as I had two of them....but not any more. Gave that last POS to my SIL and bought the Huskey Varnia saw. It's better but still not as good as the ms270 Stihl I have at the farm.
