I have an assortment of 3M diamond abrasive cloth sheets/films going down to .5 micron and am wondering where to start at with these. I was thinking 9 micron would be about right but this is my first time and I’d like to get it right.
I don’t think I should remove so much material that the deeper marks are completely eliminated but I do think I can make them less of an issue without compromising the pen too much.
I have as well, the self-adhesive abrasive sheets that Veritas/Lee Valley sells for sharpening and honing..
I also have Semichrome polish on hand and would like to know where in the abrasive scale it belongs. If there are any other products to follow up with I’d like to hear about them. Basically I am trying to use what I have on hand.
One last resource I have is a Dremel and small cloth wheels for it. I gave the pen a light touch earlier and it did polish a bit without heating up.
One last question is, should the material of this pen be treated differently than what was used in dollar pen and the classic marbled pens.
