Buff finishes.....
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, January 22, 2003 6:28 PM
Maybe you have already heard, but this is what I do:
I cut the head off of a Long, thin, wood screw, I take Some wool felt, or an old shirt like that of a work uniform(the polo-type shirts, not mechanic-type) and I cut a whole bunch of little circles (1-1 1/2 ") and after making sure they are stacked even, Sew them close to the center to keep them together with some strong thread. After doing this, I put the headless screw into my drill and drill it into the stack of felt circles.
You know have a gentle buffing bit for a dremel tool that won't tear a hole through your model, and will produce an awesome sheen.

The cloth buffer is an old metalworking tool, and it will not melt the plastic like the Dremel felt buffers. I do think that Dremel makes a cloth buffing wheel, and if they don't I'll bet Micro-Mark has one. The only thing to watch for is that the cloth wheel can grab and throw things. Be sure to have a firm grip on whatever you are polishing and wear eye protection.
