Dull Sharp Edges With Sanding Block

The exposed sides of each letter where you made your cut will be sharp. For safety, use a coarse grit sanding block to dull all edges.

Wipe Off Dust

Use a wet sponge to remove the dust created from sanding the edges of each letter or number.

Straighten Bent Metal

Some of the letters may bend when you cut them out. To straighten each out, place it atop a block of wood, then tap gently with a hammer.
