        polishing part

        I bought a 3/4hp polisher, that makes easy work of a part like this. Look at the first part of this thread, "project start to finish", to see where I started.
        Just a piece of 6061, machined, 320 paper, emery on a wheel, then white compond on a loose wheel for the final shine, wash dry, install!
        Took about 3 hours, start to finish.

            Thanks Cecil, I've got a bunch of things like this to make, so I hope you don't get bored!

              Piles of swarf and shiny storf, how can we tire of that?

              Besides which, I picked up this hobby so I could build shiny hot rod parts too. Admittedly, I have taken so many detours I may never find my way back to the 'rod, but hope springs eternal, eh?
