    Go with the Xebec. I've used them in VMCs to give a smooth (not polished, but smooth, uniform) finish to bone plates before anodize. The ceramic stones in the xebec tools hold up quite well, and...

    Throw a brush in a tool holder, run it up and down the part twice (one M3, one M4) at moderate RPM and feedrate... Boom, broken edge.

    Great taste in Sci Fi.

    If you haven't, read Crytponomicon, it was that novel that introduced me to Stephenson. Not sci fi at all, just excellent literature.

    I'm in Swiss.

    One of my smallest parts is about .060"Ø x .100"ish long, with a .035" slot through it.
