I use a compound called BBC (buffing bar compound) made by Jelenko.
It has carborundum chips in it and as you use it on gold or silver
the chips get continually smaller and the polish gets higher and
higher. I use a soft 7/8" mandrel mounted brush at medium speed with
very little pressure for gold and a 1 1/8" ‘dressed’ mandrel mounted
muslin buff at low speed with silver. I also use rouge on the
gold. You can get it from a dental supply house or go to
www.jelenko.com. You can order it direct and you can also look at
their new casting system.
