round over - clamp bases

I used an old round over bit to smooth the clamp bases that I'm making. I just wrote a simple profile cut path with the proper offset, clamped the bases down to the correct location on the bed of the Tormach, and less than a minute later I had a nice smooth edge. There was a little flange that needed to be cleaned up since I took the bit all the way down against the base, but I wanted a deep radius. The flange broke right off, and then I hit the bases with the flexshaft and then the buffing wheel.
