Never have I ever wished I had a belt-sander more than today. I didn't want to go down to the makerspace today (it's like an hour away), so I went in to work and took a whack at the trigger guard in my vice with some 1/2" x 1/4" cold rolled, a couple hand files, and a lot of sand paper. Woof.









This took literally all day, and my thumbs are just pure blister. I would love to bend it into shape, but honestly if I screwed it up I'd be in tears, lol. Time to pack it in, and save that for another day.

Thanks dude! I thought about just using 3/16 x 1/2, but that looked too thin. A lot more material to remove with hand tools than I thought with that quarter inch, though. My poor thumbs! Embarassed
