Hi, I'm Jason with expertvillage.com. We just finished the edges of the rock, gem piece, rock charm with the 220. And I'm just looking at it real quick. And we can see pretty much the whole thing has got the same shine to it. It's not shiny yet, but it's all-consistent, the edges are not really sharp. It looks to be in really good shape, so we're going to do the next step. I'm going to take out this bit and we're going to go with the 600 grit, which is the next one from 220 that we're going to use. And these take less and less water and more and more speed. So the first one, we're going to go ahead and keep it wet and go over it really quick with the bit. We're going to make sure that we hit it all with the bit. And then we'll examine for scratches. So I'll do this one really quick. I'll give you an idea how it's done. I'll just do one edge and talk... actually... I'll do one edge and then I'll talk about it in the next one. I'll show you a couple of pointers. So, I went over the whole thing. I'm going to get it wet and make sure that I didn't gouge down inside and I'll talk about the technique to use to not do that on the next one, after it dries. And we'll polish it up from there.
