Topic tags/keywords: question buffing refurbishing finishing

What would you suggest for a buffing wheel and compound for buffing saw nuts and antique wooden planes? I was inspired to do this when I saw on Hans Brunner Tools website that that is how he cleans wooden planes and brass. Take a look at the pics, the results are undeniable, it’s at the bottom of the page
He suggests an unsewn buffing wheel. Now I don’t have a grinding station so hand drill, power drill, or dremel is what I am looking for.

I bought a steel bristle wheel for my hammer drill and it works great. I usually finish up with a leather stropping wheel I got on amazon and just put it in my cordless dewalt. It has worked great on my restoration I am currently working on. I usually put a little PB blaster on the rusty part, give it a turn on the steel wheel, then strop the flat parts. Puts a nice burnish on it.

Have your say...
