I am attempting to polish a matt stainless pistol. I am not concerned about reducing the re sale value I just want a custom shooter that I will personalize, hang on to and shoot. I have no real experience with this but I have aquired a Redwing 2 speed lathe and am looking for advice on materials and techniques to get started. I realize I will not get a mirror factory like finish starting off with a factory matt finish but just want to do the best I can with what I have. So what type of wheel and compound to start with and what to go progressivly finer with? Should I use different size wheels? How about a Dremel for tight spots? I know there is allot to this but since I am working on a pistol that I would ask the big brush stroke question here first. Any experience would be appreciated. Thanks, Richee
