I bought some old bit-brace bits (the kind with the conical lead screw) that I am planning to restore. I need to buy some valve grinding paste to sharpen the lead screw (http://www.cornishworkshop.co.uk/bracecleaning.html). Anybody know where I can find some?

Advance Auto around me carries the stuff. Pretty sure any NAPA, Oreilly, Auto Zone, Shucks, Kragen, or what have you will have it…

A quick Google search shows that both Sears and Amazon have the stuff…

Thanks. I did try to Google it, but since my original post, I had better luck on the auto-parts web sites when I searched for “valve grinding compound”. Maybe “paste” is a British term.

Bill, I plan to go to the auto parts store—now that I know they sell what I’m looking for. :)
