    I have a lip in my exhaust collector I was to smooth out. What should I use to do this? I have a dremmel, but the high speed worries I lose it and knick a mating surface. Is there a more effective way?

    Sometimes the old fashioned way works best. How about a hand file, I know it will take longer but you have good control and less likely to damage other surfaces. Jut a thought.

    Can you have it media blasted or extrude-honed locally?

    I have never tried a rotary tool without variable speed. It doesn't sound too convenient. Some day you will have to give that thing away and buy another one with variable speed. I can't really picture the lip you are working on but hopefully the file will work.

    My wife has a set up with a foot pedal to do nails at her job. Maybe you could find something similar.

    Low to medium speed setting on a rotary tool and sand rolls. Don't use the carbide bits, they aren't very forgiving if you slip.
