Fixing the Thumb Wheel on a Generic Fuji X-T1 Battery Grip

It has been several months since I bought a generic battery grip for my Fuji X-T1. I don’t need to use it very often, but every time I do, my palm gets roughed up by the thumb wheel on the battery grip.

It finally occurred to me that I could buff over those rough edges with a Dremel and a buffing wheel.

Now it doesn’t hurt my palm. Yay!

FYI I used the slow speed on my Dremel and slowly buffed out the edges. The plastic used in the generic grip is pretty soft. You don’t want to accidentally buff out too much!
