kerf the face on the TS across the width to the junction of the radii and the flat a skosh shy of final line...

now cut the radius and the flat on your BS..

clean the profile up w/ a LA rabbet or shoulder plane...  a flat or round spoke shave may work a little better for this...

Thanks you John and Gene for the information on the files. As special thanks to John for pointing out the "you are never going to get that line perfect," You are right but I have to try.

 

And of course thanks to stick for posting the video. It looks like my next task is to order me some now files.

 

On a side note @ 7:45 this morning another 5.0 earthquake. Seem like mother nature is relentless.

Talking about files....

For the people that don't know.

You can sharpen of metal and wood files.

Just soak them in a jar of old battery acid over night.

Clean with water and baking soda and coat with light oil.

Good to go.

The acid removes a small amount of metal and make them sharp again.

Now that one I am trying, thanks Kevin!

I saw another little tip along the same lines, if you are using a file on metal, before filing the metal, rub some chalk on the file, and the metal does not clog your file teeth. Haven't tried it yet, but I will next time.
