    Yes. Those were plasma cut pieces. I did remove the dross first as well. It handled it pretty well. I did not go for a large chamfer or depth of cut on one pass considering how small the tool is.

    I machined edge will come out much nicer then a plasma cut one. The bevel is only as smooth as the materiel it rides against. Takes a plasma cut hole, and one made with a annular cutter . The different results in bevel edge quality is like night, and day..

    Has anyone tried both the rotary type beveler and the Trumpf style plunger/nibbler and can comment on which they liked using more?

    The steel cut with a Plasma ends up more like heat treated steel, that tool may not do as well on plasma cut metal.

    If not already mentioned, Stefan Gotteswinter built a chamfer tool on his YouTube channel.

    I love how he has that crazy disconnect in his brain. "I have no idea why the commercial versions are so crazy expensive..." "I built this one almost in about four hours and it's almost as good as the commercial ones."

    Yea, four hours of labor, plus parts and materials, shipping, plus retail mark-up.....

    I wonder what Stefan's hourly rate is? After all that time and effort to make his own, would he let it go for a pittance?

    I wonder if carbide router bits in a regular die grinder would do the same job.

    Handheld?...I think it would be too jumpy. A carbide burr might be better.
