So a while back I was going through a knife sharpening thread, and remembered someone saying that they've polished the edges of tools with a cardboard wheel on a bench grinder. Now that got me to thinking, and I made a cardboard wheel to attach to my dremel. It didn't sharpen too well, but it's one hell of a cleaner, I use it all over the place.
Now I'm polishing a knife for a friend of mine, and was just wondering that since I strop my razor, what about a leather wheel for sharpening and polishing? So I took a belt and cut 2 discs out of it using a quarter for a marking stencil. So far, it doesn't seem to be working too well but even the felt polishing wheels seem to need a little breaking in, so I'm going to keep running it a bit to see if it needs a little break in too.
So the whole purpose of this post is because I was wondering if anyone else has done any makeshift attachments, what are they, and how well do they work?
