I like your frame machine!
Wrap a fresh blade like this with about three rounds of tape, drag it lightly over the runs. Kind of like when you are spreading body filler. Eventually it will knock them down flat, if you try to sand them out you will have a big problems. :)

Hold it at about a 45 degree angle, and drag it towards you. It may take many strokes depending on the size of the run, but it will shave it down a little at a time.
Hit it with some 2000, then 3000 grit, then buff it out!
