Re: Honing Die Necks

MagMan,
Glad to hear of your success, I like the idea of the packing tape. Did you use the tape to hold the emery cloth to the rod and make at least a full wrap with the cloth. The water not only keeps things flushed out but it also keeps the die from getting to hot to hold onto! Cliff

    magman, just found this posted. im thinking of doing the same. what i wanted to know is were you worried about causing run out via honing. i mean how did you hold it all straight.
    just via hand?
    die in one hand and drill in the other under the tap?
    that simple???

    Thanks
    a good Sunnen hone with two or three grades of stones. Of course you could do it all with a diamond hone in the Sunnen
