If you are abrading by hand you can use a strip of sandpaper, about 100 grit, or a strip of emory cloth. You need to remove the shine from the chrome shaft. Personally I like to clamp the shaft in a vise with the tip end sticking out and with the strip of sandpaper use a shoe shine method to abrade the shaft tip. Be sure not to sand up higher then the top edge of the hosel.
If you have a belt sander you can abrade it that way as well.
