Got the jerky racks and installed them. Cut myself really good on a wire-end that had not been properly welded and finished. Is there any way to file or clip them down without ruining the finish?
Thanks

Is it chrome plated or stainless steel?

I would take a Dremel to the offending barb. No Dremel? Maybe you can bend it out of the way with a pair of stout needle nose pliers.

If it was me I wouldn’t even worry about it. The finish will be covered in smoke residue in a couple of smokes. If you are really worried about it a grinder would do the job.

A short quick tap with a hammer may have less chance of causing it to rust than filing will.
