I've tried rounding the corner of the wheel and can't recommend that, for my own use, though, with use, the edge will round off, somewhat, by itself. Just run the belt over the edge 1/2-3/16" and let the curve happen, as you get to the end fo the grind and gently push into the edge of the belt. You need to pay attention to what is happening, check it often, practice a lot. If the belt edge is too soft, it'll not work, but if it's too stiff,it doesn't want to make that curve, either, it'll cut a sharp corner. You may have to go with a used belt, until you get the ability to "carve" that curve. Again, try any method you feel comfortable with and PRACTICE.
