DO NOT USE A FILE. Unless you are a robot, you can never be certain you have taken exactly the right amount of metal from a mating surface uniformly. If this other guy has done this successfully, he is likely more lucky than he knows. More power to him. I only tell you this because I want you, and others who read this, to avoid learning something bad the hard way. Most of us don't have a lot of money, and this "file" suggestion leads down a path to a costly error.
