      Do you use BLO (boiled linseed oil) with the CA?
      I put a little on the paper towel. With the lathe at about 3-400 rpm I hold it under the blank and drizzle the medium CA on the top of the blank. I rub the p-towel back and forth underneath until it dries. I've tried w/o the BLO and will sometimes have issues. 99 times out of 100, no sanding is required. 
      Good luck, Dennis

      No matter what I do I cannot get a smooth finish with CA glue. I have sanded I have tried different applicators but I always end up with some lines around the blank. Sometimes they don’t show much but sometimes they do. I try to sand them out in the final sanding stages but I just cannot seem to get them all out.
      The CA finish seems like a good hard finish, it has the ultimate shine but I need to make it smoother.
      How do you guys do it?
