Hi everyone,

I am after a technique or indeed tools which will allow me to polish small flat surfaces to a mirror like finish.

I have previosuly used wet/dry 400 Grit and 1500 Grit by hand on a flat surface. The issue with that, is that it takes about 30 minutes per piece. I would like to cut this time down to the minimum.

The 1500 from 400 Grit isn't the issue, as that is quite quick, it is the getting it to a 400 Grit status, with the burs off. The surcase has to be completely flat.

I have tried a dremel, but this doesn't seem appropriate to get the flat surface.

Any idas or suggestions?


regards,

InterSimi
