3M gasket removing pad, use them all the time at work
Them are great, Emry cloth works excellent too, and i would much rather clean it up by hand..Bill W, i won't use the vulcan then, degreaser it is..degreaser won't pit or damage the aluminum surfaces will it?

Nope. Any solvent degreaser will work. Let 'er soak for a bit first.

bought the die grinder and bit set tonight.
I called a few places today on getting my EM welded up, they alll said, well, it will crack again right next to the weld, or blow out again garunteed..the one guy said TIG welding would be stronger especially if it was taced..but still would probably blow out.
**** sakes, i just want take it it, have it welded up shut, call it good lol

i got one em ported tonight with the new die grinder..now all i need to do is find something to polish the hell out of it with.
LIM is soaking in Orange degreaser now.
Looking into my LIM, i notices a few ports are quite deep in...my bit is a decent size, but probably will not go in that far..what did everyone else do?
