I have previously used them to clean up the bore of master cylinders

Anymore than light rusting or staining and I’d say the master is past honing.

I was looking into doing the same for a servo I'm rebuilding. Looks like you need to be aware of which medium the Flexhone is made of. There's SiliconCarbide ones and AluminiumOxide grit, but they're not all equally suitable for each kind of material. The servo I want to do is made of Aluminium which I think means i need the AO grit, the SC as that is too aggressive. I've also noticed not all retailers of flexhone explicitly mention which medium they stock.
