GREAT example of garbage one can find on the internet. The best thing to deglaze bores with is a berrybush hone (as posted by Jake).
In any case, the bore(s) and block should be cleaned thoroughly after any kind of deglazing is done. The deglazing tool is designed to break down while in use and those abrasive particles are not engine-friendly.
