I am new to turning pens , and want to try and get the best possible finish on acrylics. Do you sand through 12000 micro mesh at a high or low speed? Heavy pressure or light preasure? Any feedback would be a great help. Thanks guys and gals
You are not building up that much heat. If it was melting anything you would have a mess, not a smooth finishDefinitely light touch.
I go a bit faster on the finer grits. Maybe 1000. I seem to get a really smooth finish that way. In my mind it is building up enough heat to melt a bit, but I am not really sure about that.
