    It doesn't move the bottom of the letters, it polishes the area between the letters creating a gap.

    Is it a very heavy or strong buffing type wheel that creates enough friction that can actually move the bottom part of the A or M over a little bit from some created heat and plain force?
    Think of it like 2 pyramids almost touching close together, as you sand away the layer from the bottom up you get 2 smaller pyramids that are further apart.

    Thanks again and I appreciate your time

    Note: As soon as I posted this thread I got hit with something out of the blue and it knocked me out like an Ali right hook, for almost a week I still want to upload my pics to help clarify everything I wrote. Next thread I will be more prepared to do it right
    Hard to do it right if you don't duck the hook Glad you were able to make it back!!!
