TOOLS FOR POLISHING AND FINISHING
I bought the rubberized honing stick from Ray White. It came with the 400 grit sand paper and the honing cord. http://www.whitesewingcenter.com/tools.php
I believe that it might be made by Cratex. http://www.cratex.com/rubblock.htm
It is a great tool and this one has lasted me almost two years. It is just getting to the point where it really conforms to the shape and contours of sewing machine parts. Still, I think I would like to get another. Might be time to write to Mr. White.
I bought the round finishing stick from him as well. That was an accidental purchase. Originally the stick was 6 inches long. When I was checking it out, I broke it, so I bought it. Actually at this length it is perfect. It takes rust off very nicely. I think it is a Cratex item as well.
My fave, though, is the rubberized honing stick. I use it on motor commutators, tension discs, hooks, presser feet, almost any metal part that I want to shine up. It is a wonderful tool.
