Honing

Honing is a process used to improve surface texture, geometric form, and machine highly accurate dimensions in cylinders.  An abrasive stone is scrubbed on a metal piece along a set path.  Honing can even correct sections that are not square.  The result is a finish free of torn, folded or cut metal.
