Smoothing the rim of a pressed glass tumbler.

I have a modern pressed glass tumbler which feels slightly rough on the inside rim, not so rough as to actually cut but rough enough to feel noticeable on the inside of my lip when drinking from it.

What is the best method of smoothing it out, would wet and dry emery cloth/paper work or is there something specifically made for working on glass?

Thanks for all the info, I used the dremel and it worked a treat. I wore full body armour, welding mask, steel-toed boots, leather gauntlets and used an industrial extraction fan, just to be on the safe side ;o}

I am now 'road testing' the glass, hic ;o}

Brumas that's a bit over the top, welding mask, safety glasses would have been adequate.

OH and have one for me.

MechKB 2 is that the one relating to drink driving or the one that states.

If you can not work out which end of the can to open you've had enough.

Double post again but there is a 5min gap so assumed first one had not worked. These seem to be increasing as one does not know whether it has worked or not. If the second one appears in seconds then why not the first one.

Reading that lot made me chuckle but it also made my hand shake so, in the interests of comprehensive road testing, I shall stop reading and carry on regardless.

P.S. Can I the welding mask off now as it seriously cramps my drinking style? ;o}}

" Can I take the welding mask off now as it seriously cramps my drinking style?"

Not if it has welded itself on.

Maybe time to remove the cricket box as well by now.At your own convenience of course.

I have to say they were all very pleasant at A & E, after they had stopped laughing, it was the first time they had encountered someone with a glass trapped behind the welding mask visor. They managed to remove it and, to their credit they didn't spill a drop of Adnams or blood however they couldn't manage to free the cricket box from the body armour but I am told I will get used to it! ;o}}
