Smoothing Lid Flanges

A great way to smooth lid flanges is to use Water Soluble valve grinding compound that you can buy from the auto supply store. Just put a little on the flange and twist the lid back and forth and then wash it off. It contains very fine silicon carbide which you can also just use with water if you have it.

Valve grinding compound is great.Rubbing compound is finer if you really want that lid to sing when you spin it.
