I can’t speak to the use of White Diamond because I have never used
it. I can tell you how I polish silver that has worked for me for
After the final pickle and filing is done I start with a blue 3M
stacked 3" plastic brushes on a polishing lathe. I then inspect for
any defects. I then go to bobbing compound on a 3" bristle brush.
Then finish it off with Zam on a chamois wheel. I go back and forth
between the bobbing compound and Zam to get rid of all the firescale.
I suppose a purist would wash the piece between the bobbing compound
and Zam but I have not had any problems with my method.
