Quick Tip

"We tried every setting imaginable on our laser. Nothing worked for the sticky edges. We bought a ultrasonic jewelry cleaner we read about on Sawmill Creek laser forum from HarborFreight and did 3 minutes in a sign making solution called Rapid Remover for removing vinyl letters from sign blanks. After 3 minutes in this stuff we put them in lukewarm water to rinse. We were left with clean white edges and no sticky residue. Very impressive and quick. Just thought you might be interested in our solution for cleaning sticky edges for anyone else that might ask."
