Just wrapping up the sanding on first piston set. Haven't started the final polishing yet.

Going from a sand blasted surface to somewhat shiny (1500) takes about 45 minutes per piston with a low speed dremel tool. Did I mention I dislike coatings??

Rings arrived yesterday, so need to grind all those gaps down again. Then I'm within about 8hrs of where I was end of November..

i mean, worse case you can make a really cool table or lamp with them

Just out of curiosity, did you measure bore dia, taper and out-of-round before and after the quick hone? curious if there was any distortion in the little run time and if the ball hone took any out, added any or opened the bore any.

We checked for outa round before and didn't notice any measurable difference. Then literally made 3 - 8 strokes with the bead hone just to knock that glaze off in a few spots.
