Sanding down a new saddle particularly in reducing the thickness is very hazardess to the "playing fingernails unless you are ambidextrous since there is little gripping area . Best to use as has been said a miniature cheap hand vice clamped at the scribed mark.
One more advantage to be a lefty and playing right handed. For right handers you can use a piece of gorilla tape (or similar thick tape with a strong adhesive) the length of the saddle and a couple of inches wide. Fold it in half (sticky on the outside), place on saddle and then squeeze sides together (forms a T shape) and use it to slide the saddle back and forth with out risking fingernail damage.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.
