Re: Frizzen question
Yes, the frizzen face should be smooth. Couple of things. First try to determine if the frizzen face is hardened as it should be. To check for proper hardness use a small and finely toothed metal file to try to make a mark on the face. If you can mark the face without much work then the face is too soft which means you should get a new frizzen or try to harden it yourself with Kasenet (SP?). As for smoothing the face; I used use a fine sanding drum on a Dremmel to knock down the sharp edges that would sometimes populate the face of the friszzens on my front stuffers.
