I keep reading about jewelers' rouge being used with a dremel to polish feed ramps. Where do I find jewelers' rouge? Also should a fine (400-800 grit) sandpaper be used first? If so, which grits?
thanks

I polished a few things on my Freedom Arms Revolver (Loading Gate, Ejector Rod Housing, Ejector Rod Knob). What I did was get one of Dermel's Polishing Kits. These contain a couple polishing "stones" (different "fineness" (grit)) and rouge.

Don't know if this was the way to do it but taking my time I was able to achieve mirror finishes on those items without changing their shape/contours. You may want to pick one of these kits up to do your polishing.

Green Dragon, you should be able to find the rouge and the paper at any hardware store. My local True Value carries both. George
