Hi. I am using a colour-bodied porcelain tile with a rectified edge as my alfresco and pool coping tile.
The tiles have a bit of a sharp edge and I'm wanting to smooth/bevel/round an edge of the coping tile so people don't scrap their feet on it.
Has anyone done this, or can recommend the best method?
Is there anything I should know so as to not damage the tile.
I'm thinking just a sanding block, or maybe sanding disc on electric sander to make it quicker - with very fine grit paper.

Thanks guys. I found an off-cut of tile and used an old foam sanding block and was surprised how easy it was to smooth the edge. I see bunnings sell stone rubbing blocks for smoothing tiles so I might try them.
I was just a bit concerned whether shaving a little off the tile edge would somehow damage it or reveal uncoloured porcelain but its such a small amount I dont think its an issue.
