Getting a scratch free finish is easy, and I’ve finally narrowed my process down to 6 steps. I first sand the blank using Abranet sandpaper, beginning at 240 grit then moving up to 400. The second part is the polishing stage. Using 3M wet/dry polishing paper, I go through the first two grit level before moving on to the buffing stage. I am now using only two of the three wheels on the Beall Buffing system. I get all the remaining scratch marks out with the Tripoly wheel, then finish up with White Diamond to get a brilliant scratch free polish on the blanks.
