Anyone have any pics of a magwell being bevelled in progress? Or tips for special tools, jigs, etc. or just free hand it?

Thanks for the replies thus far. I do not plan to add a mag well, just looking to bevel the existing frame. After securing the frame into the vice I wondered if there was a particular file that was best to use or a jig that provides a consistant angle?

LOL.....I am glad that you have been enjoying that tool. I tend to save working with that one for after I have walked away from the bench though...my work is ameature enough as it is. Thats why I defer the real work to guys like you, Jason, Ted and LTW et al. I need to call you about this particular project as well.
