clean up

when i say i have to clean up a piece this is partly what i mean. the cufflink bit on the right is still rough from abrasive grinding tools and the one on the left happens is what happens in the later stages after i use my flex shaft (a type of rotating tool) with increasingly finer sandpaper on the piece. after this stage there are stages of polishing as well.

i'd say clean up is at least half the battle for each piece. designing and soldering would be first half. it's worse when you have to do clean up all by hand for the hard to reach places. when the clean up is uneven it's really noticeable in the finish (and slowly drives you insane).
