General Deburring Notes:
* Check print for welded seams, meaning if it is a box, do not deburr the edges that are getting formed up & welded together.
* Check print for any notes describing any edge callouts, stating that edges need to be radiused or no punch marks allowed, or for a specific angle and length of a broken edge.
* Slots & Cutouts:
* Check print for any tolarance callouts on slot or cutouts. Sometimes we need to use a punch that is the incorrect size, therefore the slot or cutout may need to be filed or reamed to size, or within tolarance.
