This is my method for honing cylinders with a ball hone, otherwise known as a dingleberry hone. This procedure is only recommended for cylinders with minimal wear, as it removes only a very, very small amount of material. Just enough to break the glaze cause by the polish of the rings going up and down in the cylinders and produce a new finish to break in with a new set of rings. Again, this is how "I" do it. I don't profess that this is the perfect way, so if that's what you're after, stop reading now.
