Maybe add some masking tape to keep the worst of the swarf off?

for info, I used fine wet&dry on a sheet of glass , to take some material off, used lots of oil and just took a smidgen off!!!

use a figure of eight pattern to avoid high/low spots and as it is slow then no need to mask anything up :wink:

Jim/ Phil/ Roger Is it worth breaking the 'how to make bearings adjustable' bit into a separate thread?
