Jeweling a bolt and barrel hood.
I have two questions, has anyone used or heard about the Brownells Deluxe Engine Turning Kit. I just ordered one and my second question is for anyone that has done this themselves, any tips you can give me. I have heard a bunch of stuff from using a pencil eraser. Thanks

The old pencil eraser trick isn't as good as using actual rubber bonded abrasive rods as sold by Cratex.
These come in various grits and work far faster then an eraser.
In the old days they had to use a small wire brush or pencil eraser and an abrasive like valve grinding compound.
The Cratex rods are much better.
One hint, I wouldn't waste any time engine turning or "jeweling" a pistol barrel hood.
It looks great until you actually fire the gun, then the normal galling basically "erases" the turning.
Look at a fired 1911 at the chaffing or galling on top of the barrel hood. That will quickly ruin all your work.
