I made a tool that sides into the front of the mag so that the feed lips can be shaped all the way to the front of the mag. Any tool that only comes up through the mag will not be able to completly shape the lips.
I am not slamming Glen's mag anvil, it' well worth the price. Your Thompson may be less sensitive to mag imperfections than mine.

Whenever a gun comes to me for service, I always suggest that the customer send any magazines he intends to use for gauging and adjusting. It is never fun to send out a proper gun only to have it hang up because of a faulty magazine.

One must be careful adjusting the lips as this can have a dramatic effect on the relationship of the mag catch hole to the radii that position the cartridges in the magazine (measured from the top of the magazine to edge of the catch hole). If this distance and radii are not correct, performance will obviously suffer.
