if you are after a smooth unwaving surface to your lug
with even flows and transitions and tapers
it can only be done with files
and then
120/240 grit wrapped around the files
and hand eye co ordination
driven by muscle power
Power tools can never do it
no matter what you use
if you desire a high standard of finish.
