    That sounds like a challenge :-). The belt sander was a late addition to my tool selection so perhaps I'm still in the "how did I work without this" phase. I'd have the sander over at 45 deg to the poured surface so that only the meniscus was touched. Pretty sure you could easily control it enough then to avoid damaging where the rails will be fitted.

    That sounds like a slightly better proposition but I tend to use hand tools a lot as I find control is better, material comes off slower, by the time I've got the power tool out etc. I've got the job done, it's good exercise.
    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted

    I'd not trust myself with a belt sander...think I'll be going with hand files, plus I've just got myself a new set of files
