Tips & tricks
For a better processing, the edgings in aluminium have to be heated to 45 - 50 °C. For this you can use a hot press or place hot air blowers underneath the edging table. Before milling of the edging both sides of the edging roll should be treated with Teflon spray. This is done by rubbing a cloth moistened with the spray on both sides of the unrolled edging. To complete this process you can then sand with 240 grit sandpaper and then seal with hard oil.
