277074 Kirk Eppler 2023‑03‑06 Re: [Sender Verification Fail] Re: making scrollwork... how to smooth?
I posted this on the FB thread, but I once saw a suggestion to use Mylar
backed sandpaper for thin  gaps, less thick than paper or cloth backed, and
still very flexible.


Something like this, can be cut to narrower or shorter once you get going.

I used to have cord abrasives for stripping paint off a turned table leg,
and this is finer still.
