    An option: Router jigs. Get some jigs cut up and use a trim router with a flush bit with bearing. It'll do the job. Not exactly the most efficient way to do things, but it will do the job.

    We use a Lassco CR-20 for coro, magnets, and ACM for corners under 1/2". We're considering getting a Lassco CR-60 for the 1 to 1.5in stuff.

    So ya want bang for the buck huh?!

    I bought a die and made a table. Only use it on soft materials like coro and magnets. Works beautifully.

    We use a bench mounted CornerRounder by Lassco with interchangeable 1/2" Die and 1-1/2" Die. Works great on Coro, Magnetic Material, 1/8" Thick ACM Aluminum & .040 Aluminum

    I like the Xpert Corner rounder.....all over $600 once you get the press and all. Course if you were to purchase the other size die's you would be that price or even higher.

    The Image One Impact Sooper Corner Rounder is $600+ but there are several "China" ones on Ebay for 1/3 the price. Not big into buying the knock off but does anyone know if the knock offs or is IO Impact rebranding another machine. Also this style only goes up to 3/8 or 1/2 I think.

    We have of the china specials, 1 with 3/8, the other 1/2. Theyre a bit of a pain to square up the die when you get them but once its set they work fine. 3/8 works good,1/2 doesnt do so well with acm and 063, it works but is a little tough. Not worth much more than $100.
