I have been using my small lathe to burnish/polish the pivots on an old mantle clock that I am working on. I mount the wheel in an appropriate sized collet in the headstock and then use a burnisher to do the work. This approach works very well until I come upon a wheel which due to the short length of the opposite end of the arbor cannot be mounted in a collet, as in the wheels pictured below. So I am looking for some advice on how best to polish these. Is there some other way of mounting them in the lathe or do I need to resort to a manual approach. Many thanks for any suggestions.
