    best polish for chrome on brass is ???

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    the La Dorio is going to need lots of polishing

    it has a lot of chrome over brass and / or chrome over copper sheet.
    whats the best polish to use?

    and your opinions on best way to preclean before polish?

    it might have been mirror finish based on the finish under the badge :D

    thanks
    Leeham

    you serious ?

    come on Dennis you have that sweet machine on the bench....
    wish you had it runnig B4 i left SYD, would have liked to see it in action

    you better give me a bit more info / technique please.

    part of the issue on the chrome is built up oxidization and i need to remove that so its not in the polish when i start polishing....

    might go visit a metal polisher ?

    There used to be an automotive chrome/metal pollish called wicked it was extreemly good and was very popular amoungst hot rodders and motor bikers. I think you can still buy it but it is not normally availible at places like supercheap or autobarn, look for it is high performance parts places or harley shops. If you need to remove lots of tarnish first you might be better starting with a cheaper pollish with a little abrasive like autosol.
