So it is Ok for it to smell like that? Phew. I have remounted the fan so that is pushing in exhaust; the smell is less noticeable now.

Why you use such high grit? I never ho above 1000 when i lap my CPU's.
I'd usually start with something coarser such as 400 grit then move on to 600 or 800 and finally 1000. Anything above that seems like a waste of time and money. The only thing you achieve from higher grit is a mirror shine, which is quite useless imo.

Isn't the mirror shine the final step anyway... i.e. a desired outcome?

You should set it up as a Pull rather then push.

Finishing the job properly? I dunno... i'll do it in my case, as it doesn't take much extra effort to do it and i may as well while i'm at it.

I think that it's easier to see light under your straight edge if it's polished actually. I have no hard data to support this but when you take a light and shine it on the underside of your flat edge I noticed that it's easier to see whether or not your surface is now flat.

And wow really 400 grit? If that's the case it's overkill(imho) to use 4 grit levels starting from 400 unless you're skimping on sheet usage.

In my experience of doing this I found that 1000 will take off the coating reasonably well and even start getting you into the Copper w/o going TOO fast. This is the only thing I can see that is a positive of 400, is that you get to the Copper quicker than you will using 1000 to start. But if you don't understand what you're doing you could go too deep. You can take thickness off. You can't put it back on.
