I have not been able to figure out if deglazing means exactly the same as honing (when talking specifically about honing/deglazing a cylinder), or if there is some difference between the two?
I will share my thoughts/findings below.
- Some sources appear to use the two interchangably.
- English is not my native language, but apparently the word deglazing is mostly known from deglazing a frying pan. A process in which residue stuck to the pan is removed. So I wondered if deglazing on a cylinder refers to removing some kind of gunk/residue in the grooves, rather than creating new grooves?
- The wikipedia article on deglazing does not mention honing, and the wikipedia article on honing does not mention deglazing.
