View Full Version : Polishing brass hardware
February 18, 2002, 04:53 PM
What's the best way to get a smooth, mirror-like finish on a muzzleloader's brass hardware? I read in a book to start polishing with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper, then buff with 0000 steel wool, and finish with brass polish. Does this sound right? Any tips or techniques you folks could share?

Good for you to read a book. I use a file and then whatever emerypaper I have at hand. If I was at Lassen College, I'd waltz over to the buffing machines.

BTW, I wasn't laughing at you. I read books (including gunsmithing books) all the time and I still scratch my head and ask myself: "how dey do dat?"
