Different metal polishing kits
The devils in the detail, the better you prepare the surface the better the finish. In many instances using abrasives both wet and dry up to 800 or 1200grit sets you up for a great looking finish. You’ll also need to decide what machine you like to use i.e. variable speed drill, bench polisher, polisher sander rotary type machine or a combination of machines. Sometime accessibility is an issue then using a drill mounted kit is appropriate. If it’s an expansive area then the polisher sander machine is more efficient. If its small parts then a bench polisher may be appropriate.
There is an extensive array of polishing kits for different requirements and choosing one can sometimes be difficult. Polish Up makes this challenge a little easier for you. Herewith a few examples using some of their product range:
