Clear Glossy Edges

Standard grinder bits are fairly coarse and leave a rough edge.  Properly cleaned of swarf and taken to a full fuse, most coarse edges will fire polish to a high gloss, but it depends on time and temperature.  Short time and lower temperature will still leave a cloudy edge.  You can purchase Fine and Super Fine grinder bits.

Do your initial shaping with the regular coarse bit.  Then clean it up with a Fine bit.  I’ve used the Super Fine bit as a final grind when I am going to slump.  The Super Fine edge fire polishes to a high gloss at slumping temperatures and retains a fairly crisp edge.  I have been quite satisfied with the results.
