I had an octagonal barrel chucked into a vise on my workbench, I was draw filing the barrel flats to get rid of the machining marks and true them up.

Well, I sort of stepped past the barrel and leaned over the bench to get a tool, and when I straightened up, I shanked myself with the sharp edge at the end of the barrel.

@cuttlefish it’s kinda in this weird point in the rifle building process when I file the flats on an octagonal barrel the edges at both ends get really sharp.

I’ll chamfer the edges once I’m done filing the flats, so the finished barrel won’t be sharp at all!
