when he was just experimenting with bearing surfaces (before Applied Fidelity) He simply took his bearings to a machine shop (I think it was just his borther in law's) and had what he called a micro-polish done to it. Basically he gave the bearings thrust plate a mirror polish. If you don't have a machine shop you might be able to do this with increasingly finer sand paper and eventually finishing with metal polish. I'm just thinking out loud, I've never tried it. That plus using the ceremic ball bearing made a nice improvement. It was not quite as good as his ceramic thrust plate, BUT definitely good and worth the endeavor.
Hope this helps.
