Jim, I agree with you completely, I usually do the razor trick and apply a heat lamp or let it set overnight, this allows the thicker material where the run is to harden up some and makes for easier uniform sandability. I use a hard block. I made various sized blocks/sanding sticks out of plexiglass which work really well. With a very hard block and only one thickness of paper you can actually sand a run out to perfection with as fine as 2000 grit. The dry time is key-trying to sand a rubbery fresh run out is usually tough.
