Default Finish drip? Read on.

Take a safety razor, those two edged thin razors, tape one edge up completely with masking tape and the outer 1/3 of the opposite edge with masking tape. Hold the shaving edge down while putting a slight bend in the razor with your thumb pressing the middle and your first and second fingers on the outside, making a slight concave. Shave the drip down from the graduated top to the balled-up bottom, then at both diagonals. Hit with some 1200 and spit, you’re done.

Another John Mauser tip, RIP.

Good tip - the answer is in the curve.

Dan Erlewine has a video tip on spot repair that shows a whole sequence that I have done - works great
