Here is my set-up for adjusting valve stem length. I'm using the 12" disc sander on my Shopsmith with 240 grit paper. I can move the valve back and forth while rotating the valve. The finish came out good, and the end flat. I cut a bit at a time and checked the length with a dial gauge.

I do it much the same way, using a grinding wheel mounted in a lathe.
