Hi Manchego.Congratulatios for your new project, Bryan.
Can I ask you what technique do you use to finish/remove the scratches on the plane cut? In other words, how to pass from pic1 to pic2.
I have been trying several techniques, however, I always end up deforming the saw cut -when I put a square to check the result I see the backlight leakeage in some points-.
I know it is just a cosmetic think, but it drives me mad.
Thank you. Keep it up!
I'm still figuring that out myself I'm probably more fanatical about it than would normally be needed because most of the edging will be chrome plated (requires a 2-part build-up). So keeping the edge surfacing true, square, flat and smooth is challenging. I use a honing stone quite a bit but only if it can be held square on the edge of a table, or aligned with the part. It's hard to keep from rounding over the edge corners irregularly when doing it freehand. Curves, especially concave ones, seem to require the most patience. So there's not any one technique, as it depends on the shape of the part and how you are able to support the finishing tool. Others here may have some better ideas that could teach us both.
Edited to read "concave" instead of "convex"
