Hi everyone, I know most peoples views on dremels verses flexi shaft
from the archives! I cannot however afford to buy one at the moment
and have purchased a dremel with flexi shaft very cheaply and hope
to use this initially until i can get some cash together. what i am
hoping to do with it is polish some small pieces of silver jewelry
that i have made. I have never attempted polishing before , but its
time i started to do it myself!!!
I am unsure however which bits and bobs i need from the dremel range
to do this, or indeed if there are any cheaper attachment
combinations i could use? I also purchased a DREMEL 624 16-Pc
CLEANING/POLISHING kit but i am unsure about the cleaning compound.
so two questions really… if those that have used dremels in the
past before they moved on to better things can remember?!!!I

- if i used this above cleaning set , how would i go about
polishing an item from the roughly sanded stage(with firescale!!),
which bits, which order? 2. if it is better to go to tripoli and
rouge? what bits and bobs do i use?
Thankyou in advance for helping with this probably very basic level
question. i guess we all have to start somewhere! Regards
