Hi there- I’m having trouble with barrel trimmers- lost the grub screw in one (waiting for replacement) and the other just doesn’t work without really hard pressure-I use it in a hand-held drill. So I took note of previous posts and bought a blank arbour and got a set of bars- sorry I’m not using the correct terms but hope you understand what I mean. I cut up small squares of sandpaper and have been using these stuck to the arbour to square my ends on the lathe. However I’m finding that this process doesn’t remove much of the extra wood remaining after I insert my brass tubes into the blanks. So I’m wondering how many millimètres could one expect to remove with this method??
Also how to best sharpen the barrel trimmers seeing as I have them anyway!!
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
