I had asked Smitty the same question. No sanding is required on the bottom of the feet. Make sure you don't leave any sharp edges or burrs. It is important that the guide feet lay flat against the blank, this is done by simply bending them. I think one of the advantages of buying the guides at Rod builders is they needed no adjustment. The mail order house guides needed some tuning.
