Polishing

Polishing is time-consuming! I wish we had some better tools to make it go faster. I’m a lazy armourer when it comes to making things really pretty.

Use various grits of water paper to bring up the shine on your project. This is a time-consuming process. Most of our armour we leave at 120 grit flap discs quality because we know it is going to get rusty out there on the battle field.
Buffing wheels come in many sizes. Use buffing compound to bring up the shine. At some point, we would like to get an industrial-sized buffing wheel but we aren’t there yet.
