I am doing a set now, I started with a new OLFA knife blade cut off as much as possible then touched up with a die grinder. I have 2 done and the other 2 need a grind and finishing

I have heard that a belt sander or Dremel work well. Just make sure you are wear some type of breathing apparatus...

This type of sander is excellent too!!! I'm not a big fan of shaving but the previous owner of my tires had already started and since it was badly done, i had to finish the job to have them look good! LOL Also, mineral spirits helps too, as it ''melts'' rubber, in a certain way!
