…How the heck does extrude honing work?

A polymer media carrying an abrasive grit is pushed through the workpiece by a hydraulic ram, causing the media to be extruded through the holes and passages in the workpiece. The grit hones all surfaces of the metal passages as it goes by--hence the name extrude hone. In essence, extrude honing produces controlled erosion, grinding away imperfections. The technique can be used aggressively to enlarge passages or delicately for fine polishing.
