I haven't done the Spindle yet, but I did the tonearm shaft. I don't know what happened to the BB I had installed, gone, very strange. But Marc is sending me one, I hope that one doesn't disappear. I only had 1200 crocus cloth but it came out with a mirror finish and then finished it off with X-treme metal polish and lubricated. I didn't use a drill, although I could have, but all the small imperfections that I could feel are all gone, especially at the bottom where the BB meets the shaft. This table is getting close to perfect, thanks guys for you help.
