When working on the worms I took another road than Jeff Johnston describes in his book. Jeff advises to sand them with 600 grit paper. That's all right of course but a rather tedious job. I put a polishing disk in my Proxxon, put on some polishing paste and off I went. In less than three minutes all six worms were polished, all burrs were gone and the surface of the worms was smooth as baby skin. At last a fast and easy job. Certainly no wear to expect from these worms.
