Hi Dex-Jay

My Roby shafts look like the top pic, what did you use to get them looking like the bottom pic?

Hi,
Watcha want is a lathe, drill or what I used a pedestal (vertical drill). You could mount the drill in the vice. Anyway put the end in the chuck and tighten it up (don't go mad, but firm you know).

Then while spinning use abrasives (I used Aluminum Oxide) in coarse grades, then progressively finer. 80, 180, 320. Do this to the shafts and the ball (carefully as you don't want flats on the balls).
At this point most of the crud & rust will be gone. Then I used 1200 and 2000 wet and dry with just a bit of water.

Then polish the shaft with Autosol (Brasso probably would do it). You could use much the same of the nylon balls - Novus is good or I used a 3M Fine Polish as a final polish on the balls.
Wax lightly to stop it from oxidising and that's it! Use eye protection if you're clumsy like me and watch your fingers! They take about 10 mins from start to finish and while not uber-mint, they do look pretty good...Big smile

Rich

(Don't have a spare 4" Wico do you? Thought I'd ask!)
