I'm with Elca about that valve grinding compound. But holding a small =
baby food jar in one hand, and my hat in the other, I asked my garagist =
for some of the stuff. As he buys it in a big drum he gave me a good =
dab, which has lasted me for years. I use it on a small piece of plate =
glass. (Glass stores will have small leftover pieces cheap) BUTT I =
smooth the feet of pots with a wooden tool after trimming.
On other rough bottoms I recommend Nivea.
Of course you wear goggles when grinding a pot with a flapwheel. As I =
have learned from my endless grinding down of rust on m,y pickup,flap =
wheels do throw off grit and a face mask is a really good idea--wearing =
it AS WELL AS SAFETY GOGGLES.
Elizabeth David warned years ago (already yet) NOT to cook bones in a =
pressure cooker. Whether you are cooking a chicken cum bones, or a pot =
roast, or just plain bones for stock, the pressure cooker will give =
whatever a GLUEY TASTE. I cook my absorption test tiles along with eggs =
or potatoes. =20
Be of good courage
