TitleAxle Polishing and Embedding Graphite

CategorySpeed Tips

CommentPut the axle in a drill chuck and spin it up. While it's spinning use steel wool on the axle and move it back in forth. After you use the steel wool keep spinning the axle and use a lead pencil on it to get the graphite embedded into the axle.
