Polishing and Buffing

Bookmark and Share

Whether you are a professional jeweler or a hobbyist, you will most likely spend a lot of time buffing and polishing to clean up a piece once you are done repairing it, or to give it a beautiful shine if you have just finished creating it. You may buff to cut through and remove deep surface scratches or rough parts in the metal, and otherwise prepare a metal for finishing. The final step in the process would be using gentler buffs and compounds to polish the piece to its desired finish, which could be anything from a mirror-bright finish to a textured or matte finish depending on the look you wish to create as the designer. No matter if you plan to just clean up any rough edges, or add a fancy finish to the piece, you can save yourself time and energy when you stop relying on your own elbow grease for every job you need to polish. Instead, let the electric motor and these buffing wheels and compounds do the heavy work for you.

With this collection of articles, we will tell you everything you need to know about buffing and polishing from finding out how to know which wheel and compound is the right one for you, to the tricks you learn after years of experience.
