HOWTO: ABS raw edge mod, how to turn a raw edge and give it a return


Recommended Posts

If its a Teflon coated one, just use it straight up. It's its the steel one, use a think piece of fabric like fine woven cotton or canvas. Test a scrap piece of plastic first as the cloth covered irons can leave an impression on the plastic if you hold it in place too long. Here's a video I made a few years ago as tutorial.<a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='https://youtu.be/OJwOmIS4hSw'>https://youtu.be/OJwOmIS4hSw</a>

Thanks for this tutorial.  I was able to successfully create a return edge on some scrap plastic.  Indeed the sock does leave imprints in the plastic as I'm molding it, so I figure a few different types of sand paper and procuring some Novus is in my future to bring the shine back.
