Another wrapping question.

What does "burnishing the wraps" mean exactly? I know you want to wrap, and wrap fairly tight. I uses a gallon jug and a book. It worked well. But what's burnishing. Thanks. Scott

Scott,

 

After the guides are wrapped, sometimes there are small gaps between the turns of thread. Burnishing refer to carefully rubbing the surface of the threads with a smooth, rounded object, like the back side of a spoon or a crocheting needle.

 

You need to carefully burnish the threads with not too much pressure. To want to close up any gaps but not cuse any fuzzing of the threads.

 

They make specific burnishing tools out of plastic and metal. Gudebrod makes an inexpensive plastic toll for about $1.50.
