I did a quick scan looking for a thread and didn't see it on this subject (or maybe missed it). I used a dremal tool with all different kinds of polish to include coke-cola ... it leaves swirl marks and the metal is somewhat brighter, but not clean looking. :( What materials should I use and what is a good technique for polishing brushed aluminum?:confused Thanks.

I believe the process is sand, sand, sand, sand some more then polish.

Start with 420 work your way up to 1000 then polish.

kzin is correct, you are going to have to sand first. Then second unless you are polishing a very small piece that Dremel isn't going to cut it, with the small sizes of the polishing wheels you are never going to get a smooth surface, too high an rpm with too small a surface area, swirls and uneveness all over the place.

Check out Eastwood Company for buffing supplies as one possible source.
