    Hello,

    I need some assistance. I currently own your larger English Wheel and I need to polish the anvils. The surface finish that came with them seemed to have sort of a grooved finish, as if it did not get a finish cut and polished. I read in a PDF distributed by Eastwood that these Anvils are hardened. This may explain why very little happened when I chucked them up in my lathe and tried to polish out the finish by starting with 80 grit and worked my way up to 600 grit. I only got a nicely polished grooved surface.

    What are your suggestions for polishing these micro grooves out? I MUST have a mirror polished finish when working with soft metals.

    Please advise!

    Scott
