    Question Taking Small scratches and nic's out of Brass mods

    Peoples,

    Im looking to take some small machine marks out of a brass mod.

    I have tried braso and polishing wheel on a dremal but this is going to take a little more.

    very fine wet and dry sandpaper maybe.

    anyone got any hints and tips before I ruin a $200+ mod with my stoopid.

    You could use some very fine Wet & Dry (i.e. 2000) to wet rub it down very gently, then finish it off with some Brasso.
    The wet and dry will get the larger scratches out but it will leave micro abrasions that give it a matte finish. These abrasions are easily talked with a polish though. Just yesterday I actually used this method on my Cobra cap. It made light work of it and that's Ti!

    Take it to a jeweler? An ex of mine was an amateur jeweler, and she had a lambswool polishing attachment for a bench grinder..... that, combined with a special polishing compound did the trick to most thing's she made. Even a commercial place should be able to do it relatively cheap

    One more thing, If you're only planning to rub in small sections, and not the entire device, be sure to feather out the sanding from the scratches.
