Scored cylinder cleaning
« on: July 23, 2018, 02:16:10 pm »
So many different ways, just find whats works best for your needs.

I use flapper wheel and then emery clothe by hand. I wont use acid. I then use a ball hone to add fresh crosshatch. Not really needed but I feel it makes a difference in my rebuilds.

My 3 step process in pic.

Kevin what grit  flap wheel do you use is that a compressed air handpiece  I have a dremel tool with variable speed have considered using that I enjoy the video here the op uses a foredom variable speed unit and nails that are slotted to take the emery paper

Mine is a generic foredom with foot pedal.  I use 80 and 120 depending on how much transfer.

I have used the acid method with scotch bright many times.   Then on the final clean up I will use a ball hone.   
I think the ball hone will remove aluminum transfer much faster then it will chrome used in chainsaws due to the aluminum being softer.

Just be careful if you use a flap wheel .I ground right through the plating once on an 034 Stihl .They make flap wheels using Scotch-Brite which would probably be a better choice .
