If your belt part works use it. you can use a spindle but dont gouge them. Or the finer side of a hoof rasp. got to be careful not to splinter the glass.

Hows that plane blade looking?  :)

I do mine on the belt set up on the Rigid.  Secret is to keep it moving and take your time.

Hand sanding :notworthy: Aren't you the intrepid one. Hope you are taking regular breaks to flog yourself, self abuse requires dedication :biglaugh:

I remember a guy named Hera several years back that did a whole TD with hand saw rasps and sand paper. Even hand rubbed the finish with a mix of petroleum jelly and super glue.

I profiled one a while back using a cabinet makers rasp , file and jap saw including sight window worked good for the middle of the night not making noise and didnt take long but be careful work glass to wood like was said !
If you fear failure, you will never try ! But never except it!!
