I think that's pretty much true with all abrasives .The ones I have are just throw aways they used to shine up stainless steel pipe after they heliarced  it .Probabley much more aggressive than should have been used on a saw cylinder .

I learned my lesson though .Actually I could have ran the soft stones in the Lisle micro hone except I didn't want to foul the stones with tramp aluminum .If I'd had used the hard ones ,impregnated diamonds they would have cut that nicosil faster than the flap wheel did . --kinda caught between a rock and a hard place -- ;)

Before using muriatic acid, I use a cordless chain grinder at low speed to grind down the bigger blobs of aluminum.
The grinding stones dont wear out the chrome of the cylinder. The job is so much simpler and fast because  this kind of grinder can be used like a mechanical eraser to 'erase' the aluminum.
90% of the time after the grinder, muriatic acid is no longer required. Just a final touch with a very fine emery.
