Round cornered basing

Having done the 3x2 pvc bases for Rommel with rounded corners I found them very professional like and decided that the figure and tank basing would also look good with rounded corners .

So here they are

After several methods for mass production this is currently my best jig

Its a nail cutter  screwed to a pvc block and a corner guide with raised sides for any size of base to fit in and have 2mm corner cut off with the curvature of the nail cutter .A slight rub with a file will take round off more smoothly the corners as the cutter has a large radius 

I have found round corner cutting pliers on line but the don't work if you have the figures already attached on the bases

The jig needs to be aligned so as the base rests level on the lower fixed jaw of the cutter
