These are used with lengths of various grades of emery paper cut to width, rolled up and taped.
Instruction for use below.
I make these on my 10mm a 8mm watchmaker's lathes using 12mm bar.
Finished they are approx 11.8mm dia.
Recommended maximum 6000rpm
|6 strips, near to 38mm each, are cut from a sheet of emery paper, and using old scissors two corners are cut off.|
|The strip is pulled over an edge to curl it up, and then fitted into the slot and bent over.|
|Carefully and tightly rolled up to make a spiral, gaining about 0.5 to 1mm as it goes around (this presents a fresh edge as the used emery paper is torn away)|
