GUIDE FEET PREPPING

Interested in how others go about prepping or not guide feet for a thread transition up the slope. I've done both but clearly prefer tapering the feet. It takes me approx a half hour to grind, file and wet/dry sand to polish a set of guides for a Concept lay out. I stop at size 8 guide when prepping. This is for wrapping with D thread. If A thread is used all are prepped. I notice w/K guides there is a steep slope especially on the reduction guides which don't allow a smooth transition w/power wrapper. Hand wrapping would allow to follow the angling of thread prior to thread wrapping straight. Packing is key .
