I have a piece of rail road track about 8 inches long on my bench. I ground the edge of one side of the bottom of the track real sharp. It is perfect for getting a little tighter edge on something like that.

You want to make it fit better before you weld it in not try to make it fit AS you are welding it in.

Done,I will post pics tomorrow.Thanks.
