use of diamond hand pad

Postby Marilyn Kaminski » Tue Feb 03, 2004 10:32 am

I have a couple pieces with a burr on the edge -- a little sharp bit that's very unappealing. Small enough that it seems a waste to grind and go through a whole fire-polishing cycle ... is this something that a diamond hand pad would clean up?

Thanks -- Marilyn

The diamond pads will work, but I find them hard to control on small edges. One slip and you scratch the surface of your piece.

For fine details I like to use diamond honing sticks.

Coarse, medium, fine, or superfine?

I find the fine and superfine to be the most useful.
