   My concern would be removing the metal filings from the circuit board 
afterwards.  One trick you can do with resistors that you 'need' to be 
precise, use a machined IC socket and plug in resistors as needed.  When 
you have the most precisely matched one found, then it's quite easy to 
solder it into the socket and never worry about component creepage.
