The final process is polishing

August 11, 2013

The final process is polishing.  Most pieces are barrelled first for a few hours to get into the backs and parts that are hard to reach with polishing mops.  Going into the polishing shed requires some covering up and wearing a face mask. It’s a filthy business!  Not the least but romantic but it is lovely to see the real shine of the metal coming through as I attack each piece with 4 inch buffs travelling at 3000 rpm on my big polishing machines! Great care is needed to avoid polishing away fine details or having the mop grab...
