    I'm with RodeoTex on this one. The little buffing wheels are dirt cheap on Amazon and jeweler's rouge puts an amazing shine on fretwire (it it's already sanded out to 1200) Makes bending a breeze.

    The only complication may be that you have finish on the ends of the frets gumming things up. You'll need a cut line where the bead meets the edge of the fingerboard if that's the case.

    For 16 bucks you can get 2 and you'll probably never need to buy any again.
