This type of system was brought out as Powersharp or something like that a 
few years ago. You can't use a normal chisel chain, and as I recall you need 
a special bar too. As others have said, it files off the top of the chisel 
rather than the underside. I looked at it at the time, it's a fairly 
compromised set-up, the chain is never as sharp as a conventional chisel 
chain, and gets dull even in storage. Plus you get through chains very 
quickly. On the plus side it's quick and simple for sharpening, ideal for a 
hobby user who doesn't need it razor sharp anyway and for whom conventional 
sharpening is mysterious and almost dangerous. I have a few friends who, when 
their conventional chain gets blunt, either wait for me to come around and 
sharpen it or buy a new chain. It would be ideal for them. For commercial use 
it looked to me to be a gimmicky no-no, and I investigated no further. To 
this day I don't know anyone who has one.
