Glue a strip of sandpaper on a strip of wood, and you will likely be surprised at how fast it can be sanding, and you can easily round edges. I used to do it that way, but stopped when I got a ROS and now use that. I do have a roundover bit, but think I only used it once. Faster and easier to just hit my stuff with a sander. Reworking most of my cane designs tho, and in the future may, I say may, not will, use the roundover bit, more for consistency than anything, but time will tell.

Plyometric training is designed to increase speed, power and explosiveness. Plyometric training sessions are a great supplement to regular strength training.

ĎA plyometric exercise is quick, powerful movement that starts with an eccentric (muscle-lengthening) action and is immediately followed by a concentric (muscle-shortening) action. Performing plyometric movements increases muscular power, which translates to higher jumps and faster sprint timesí.

Plyo Boxes have become quite popular in gyms, but many people are still not too sure what to do with them without guidance. They are highly versatile, functional pieces of equipment. You can get three jump landing heights out of one piece of equipment.

Basically a step up from cardio exercises. (pun intended). Our gym coach is big on plyo exercises; he really likes 'jumping jacks' and 'Polish boxing'...pretty sure he's the only one.

Jay; I meant to add that Aluminum extrusion comes in two types, basically structural or Architectural. The latter is extremely fear of it being out of square. It's easily identifiable by the fact that all the edges and corners are noticeably cleanly formed and square in rounded edges. Lovely stuff to work with. If you do a cutout for the bit opening it'll substantially weaken the extrusion, ie making it more bendable (not desirable ).
