With the scales on, it's time to start the bulk removal of material to get them fairly close to the final shape. I use something that cuts, such as a 50 grit AO belt. I like to use the belt sander/disk sander combo along with a 3/4" drum sander in the chuck of my drill press.
Ready for the fine finishing (400/600 grit) and polishing.
