I have read a lot on the forum about polishing the axles and most of that seems to fit what I am doing. I am just using a white liquid paste after the 2000 grit instead of Brasso I guess.
But the part I am never sure about is what people are referring to as tapering the axle head.
What I have been doing is using either a sharp file end or a point of an X-Acto inside of the head to remove that mold mark or line. When done the axle head is slightly shaped like and umbrella - kinda hollowed out a bit.
Then I take the 2000 on the edge of the head to remove any possible sharp spots.
Is this correctly tapering the head?
