Thanks for the links guys.  
I have never used a Dremel mower blade sharpener for fin beveling, but I do have one, so i may need to try that some day.  Mine has the slot for the blade so it will probably only work with fiberglass 1/8" thick or smaller.
I have used the method John Coker has on his website which is also full of great information. http://www.jcrocket.com/finbevels.shtml
I have seen Jim Jarvis's carbon fiber rockets and they are really works of art.  Just beautiful.

build. Lot of good tips:

Tons of other great stuff in there too..

It's interesting that he uses a long pot-life epoxy (2hrs!!). Wow.. I bet it's
super strong!

You ever use a dremel mower blade sharpener to do fin bevels?
