Is it possible to grind the names off kegs and polish them back to a smooth finish? I have an AB keg that I just converted for my MLT. I bought this keg from a scrapyard and it has some dings in it which don't really bother me. What bothers me is my nice new MLT advertises for Anheiser-Busch with the big EAGLE logo on it. I hate being an advocate for craft beers and then having one of my pieces of equipment pay homage to a beer I really hate. Just wondering if anyone has done this before polishing.

I saw where kegs.com refurbs them and can press out the stampings. Im sure they use a large hydraulic press, but I bet you could do it with a hammer and dolly for doing automotive bodywork. It will definetly take a while. http://www.harborfreight.com/7-piece...set-31277.html
I just went out and looked at my keggles. I am pretty sure I can just take my hand grinder with flapper disk and just grind down the raised lettering. i do not think that you will grind all the way through the keggle before the outside is smooth.
I think some kegs the imprint is very deep and might require you to grind away too much metal. However, most of the kegs I have you would be able to do it but it would be such a pain without some clever method or industrial tooling.
