need help on setting action low

is there any good guide that teach newbies on how to set the action as low as possible without any buzzing? I been to projectguitar, and didnt see anything on dressing frets, and the only one i saw, the link was down. To able to set the action so low that there isnt any buzz/rattle at all, the fret must be properly dressed isnt it? What other factors are involved? How bow the neck is? All i wish is to get my guitar lowered to 1mm without any buzzing/ratting at all, currently its at 1mm at 12th fret and its ratting on 4 and 5th fret on low e strings and sligt rattle on frets below 12 fret. I know sending to a tech will be a better choice, but i will like to learn how to do a proper setup by myself even it might ended up ruining my guitar. To be truthful, I have some social phobia, I am scare of facing strangers
