fetish .. sickness.. call it what you will ..

i think i now know what my problem is with polishing and fine marks .. i think my polishing wheel is causing them cause they are consistant with the wheel .. almost like swirl scratches but in a straight line..

i tested this by angling the metal and i could see the fine scratches now changing direction .. you can only see them at certain angles .. otherwise it looks mirror..

to start with .. alloy plate


and after




so can a polishing/buffing wheel become course or lose its fluffyness?

my final polishing is Purple polish (love the stuff)

to be honest out of all the crap i spent my money on with buffing wheels and compounds and bench grinder etc.. and after alot of practice with what works for me .. i found wet sanding up to 2000 and then keep using the 2000 even after its got no more bite as it appears to help smooth out almost as if you went higher grade .. .. then with the wheel on the drill and purple polish many times and .. instant mirror

maybe this should be my new job hahaha .. god no!

You've polished it too much.
The plate started off bigger than your dog and ended up smaller than the milk crate. Snigger
