I'll say this to all, there is always some little scratches on a hard aluminum like 7075 T6, and i'll usually take all sharp edges (easy to get cuts to your hand) nicely with smooth metal file and small fast spinning dremel carbide sanding band.

Also i add chamfer to pieces at edges where the rod end "comes out", it gives to it more room to move. Machinist is somewhat too busy i guess to make it most of the times.

At my ex work place, they did sometimes a lot of sanding and smoothing to aluminum parts if they were ment to be anodized.
