I saw a tool that helps match bridge feet to violin. It clamps a violin in place, sand paper goes on violin belly grit up then a clamp with wheels rolls bridge over sand paper to get feet to match violin. That was an interesting gadget. Sorry, I did not get pics. Sanding is still done by hand. I did not know such a tool existed thought I would pass along.
What I would call it would be "Little Toy Car", because when I was sanding bridge feet last, that was what I used.

I have never used one of these tools but I have been thinking if it might do a better job. I generaly use a knife to cut the feet and just do a final bit with sand paper.
To help combat the rounded feet I only sand in one direction, this seems to work for me but I am not against change and trying new things.
