Thanks all for reading
Jive' Using a slight bit of Oil on the V area would be a good idea...
...as far as tips for cutting the com.?? Well I can tell you how I do mine.
... I start by cleaning the Com first , second I use a larger Black Permanent marker to color the com and then I make very light passes untill all of the Black is of the com
..also by using the permanent marker it helps act as a light lubricant when cutting.... Most of the Local Japanese Guys do it this way at my Track so this is how I learned
Hope this helps a bit
