I attempted just a few small areas with it at this time utilizing aluminum oxide and that labored fairly effectively. I simply had a small quantity to check with and might want to order extra and can see how a lot I can get performed subsequent weekend.


That is how the inside seems to be now. Total steel is in nice form.
