1548 viewsA typical Liner secured in the fixture. When grinding any liner I use Sunnen honing oil #MB-30-5 that has been used before to grind chrome. I make the 1 in dia X .750 wide (100 grit) wheels, & grind at 26,000 rpm to get this finish. These liners are not honed after grinding & there is no lapping done with any type of diamond lapping compound!Jim Allen
