LINISHING.


        LINISHING is a surface finish, achieved by using coarse emery
                  paper/cloth to create parallel lines in the surface of
                  the object.  When very fine emery is used, it is called a
                  "satin   finish".    In   Industry  a  machine  called  a
                  "linisher" is used.  This is basically a belt sander.
