Well I polished my cap and plate. Still need to work a bit more on the plate but Im geting there! It looks Great and shaves a bit more...slick now.
Sure! For the top cap I used wet sanding paper. Started with 800 and ended with 2000. And finished with Autosol. I guess thats closes to Flitz in American. The plate is a bit harder. I used polish compound with a Dremel and middle soft round felt rounds. Not done yet with the plate but will finish with Autosol. Patience is the key. It takes many hours but worth it. Trust me!I've got one of those on the way. Mind telling me how you did it?

Nice! Any pictures?I don't know about larzone, but I bought a package of rouge and used the Green (Stainless) and then final polished with the Red (Jewelers) compounds using my Dremel and half a dozen or so polishing/buffing wheels.
The handle was the most difficult, as the rouge stuck between the diamond knurling, but dropping it into the ultrasonic took it right off, leaving it bright and shiny.
Well worth the effort, as I'll swear mine seems to glide smoother than unpolished and makes Rocky a real looker.
Great work! Yes. A proper buffing wheel would be Great and cut some time for sure!If you have a bench grinder, a cotton wheel and a bar of rouge it takes minutes.
Heat is your enemy when using cotton wheels.

Brass is softer than stainless so it polishes quicker, but a bench grinder and a buffing wheel makes short work of it.
