"when you say grinding paper i interpret as "sand paper" and if this is the case and its all you have then burn it, the paper turns to ash and the silicon carbide which has a VERY high melting point is still there."

A really interesting idea. Especialy for us, who don't have a _cheap_ access to most of the specific ATM stuff. Would anyone be kind enough to compare #320 grit with "#320-burnt-sand-paper" product? :)

Is by any chance the process documented on the web?
