notched straight edge thats not straight


Recommended Posts


I have bought two notched straight edges now. Both have gaps around the center on both sides. I have gotten my money back on one but the other is from China and they are not yet going to take it back so I may loose money on it. I have tried to smooth them down but I am using wet and dry paper and the Aluminium is clogging up the wet and dry paper. Which is best to smooth down metal? sand paper or wet and dry? I have bought a level that is as long as the straight edge and I used double sided tape to stick the paper on. I don't know if there is a better method available.

Any one got any ideas?
