If you know anyone who works in a machineshop, you could see if they would be willing to fire up the surface grinder for you- If not, sanding is about it as far as i know-

JB Weld is just epoxy with metal dust added.
Duracoating requires media blasting to properly adhere to a surface. If you blast a part with "filled" lettering, the blasting media will abrade the softer epoxy more than the surrounding steel-making the lettering show.
Block-sanding with a fairly coarse grit paper, rather than blasting, might work before painting.
