Thanks Franklin. I need to work on diligently cleaning them prior to photos. It seems like I always miss something, like the lint and dust where the guard meets the ricasso on this one. The only way I have found to get a super clean finish is to get off the machines early. I rough everything in with a new 50 grit, then refine the lines with new 120. After that it's files and hand sanding for final shaping and finish through about 800 grit, and that is it. It is time consuming as all get out, but the end result is worth it to me. Getting paid for that time expenditure is the challenge, lol.
