Default Re: Desurfacing a street sign

Agreed. I spent a fruitless hour sanding and filing a stop sign, then eventually gave up. I might use it for an ash-bin instead if I can fold it into a useful shape that fits the oven mouth nicely.

Stop! Collaborate and listen!

Don't use the sign, the effort to getn it to usable state would be better spent using a nicer alloy, they make signs out of such stuff to discourage reuse except as decoration in sheds or student digs.
