... My question is should I use the Goddard longshine polishing
cloth on my satin finishes or only shiny?
Hello Laura. FWIW, I use the Goddard's cloth on everything: satin,
matt, high gloss, whatever. Goddard's cloths and Argentium Silver
(AS) get along REALLY well (the cloths greatly enhance AS's tarnish
resistance) so I'd use it everywhere unless I found some good reason
And if so, where do I get it?
I'm in Europe so I got mine over the web from Knees of Trowbridge
(http://www.kneesnet.co.uk). Great price, great service, fast
delivery. I plan on ordering in bulk from them next time.
In the US and/or Canada there are a few options on the web. DoItBest
Hardware (doitbest.com) looks like they have a good price (SKU:
609277). FurnitureProducts.com has them too. I've never dealt with
either of them personally.
And just to be sure, I should definitely bake it if I want it
Not sure I follow you here but yes, you can harden AS very nicely by
precipitation hardening it in the oven. It's easy and it is very
effective. Work hardening (smithing, rolling, etc) also works great.
