Removing mold seams from roadwheels

Hello,

in one thread was a nice "how to" of removing the mold seams from road wheels with the help of a Dremel and sand paper sticked to the table.
I think it was from James Tainton. Anyone of you has a link to the specific thread?

Thanks,

Thomas

Hoi,

I remembered seeing this a few weeks ago. I got around to the time where i needed to send the wheels of my Academy M-10. Put a toothpick in the drill, got out a sanding stick (with coarse and fine) and in 10 or so minutes i was done with two sets of wheels (open and closed wheels). Nice to be done with that!

Thanks for having these tips and links here on PA!

later
Ruud

I think I will give this method a try as well. Scraping and sanding seams of wheels is one of the things I find really boring.

Cheers
