    Default Rounding Corners on Aluminium Plate

    I don't suggest anyone try this because it could be dangerous.
    I have tried all sorts of ways to round the corners on the plates I use.
    Band saw, linishing and a press with a die but it never gets a perfect round corner and it always needs linishing. Today I decided to try using a router.
    I have a router table and purchased a cheap router bit to use.
    Clamped the 6mm or 1/4" thick plate between some pine studs to cut down the chatter.
    Here is the result.
    I then tried rounding the corners of a 100mm or 4" diameter tube that had been 1/3rded.
    Here is the result of that test.
