If I want to remove file marks etc before putting small
silver articles into my polishing barrel (tumbler). Does anyone
have any suggestion as to the best way to remove these marks
prior to polishing?
I used to use a product called a Beartex wheel. It fits on the
tapered spindel of your polishing motor and is available in
different grits. I bought them from Gesswein in Connecticut,
USA. You would have to try the different grits to determine
which will work the best with your choice of tumbling media.
Emery paper works well on flap mandrels in a flex shaft
handpiece, but is slower.
