Besides my pocket knifes, my files are my best friends. Sandpaper will crease where you bend it. the paper will crack and the grit will fall off where it is bent. So the edge of the paper really has zero effect.
As a machinist, I deal with metal. 1st year apprenticeship entailed making a static cannon on a base plate. All bevels were made with a file using a process called draw filing. the base plate had a 45 degree 1/8" wide bevel which was all done by hand. Files have hard edges so I can file right up to a corner and come in various shapes and sizes. Some I have modified for my own purposes.
So the use of files works perfectly for me. Plastic is no different than steel except its softer.
Here's my selection of files. This is everything I use to sand my products. When done, they re washed in a non abrasive mild sap and cold water with a well used steel scrubby. They are then riveted, painted where necessary and clear coated.
These files are round, square and flat for the various jobs required of them.
