lets get back on track guys the proper tool is a keyway cutter but that does not remove all the metal , its only to hog out the majority then use a slide file and some lapping compound ..... heck if your teeth are sharp and strong enough chew them rails in ... point being not all of us have access to the proper tool, but dont say it cant be done or is going to be "half arsed" thats just your opinion as you have no idea what skill set any builder has to remove some metal ....

So hows them proto types comming ....

I would like to apologize for this sudden sidetrack event.

Please carry on.

PS. I have done it before in so many different ways

Once again my most sincere apologies for the inconvenient.
