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

Yes, if I get a chance I'll take a picture.

Re: Honing Die Necks

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
