Back To A Pile Of Parts While Deburring

I've come to really loath the deburring process for edges and holes. I recognize it's importance preventing ill fitting parts, bad rivets, and future cracks. But it's a tedious, long and boring process. I'm always looking for a better/faster way to accomplish it but many times its comes down to elbow grease. Or maybe I just overdo it. But many pieces have visible factory tools marks from the shears that cut them and those marks must be removed. And many times the only way to do it is by hand with a file, sandpaper and a Scotchbrite pad. I feel like I'm moving backwards after ending up with a pile of parts again instead of nicely clecoed together elevators. All part of the process.
