In reply to Scratches in brass by Henry in MI on October 15th, 1999 07:08 AM [Go to top of thread]

I my work I have to remove scrapes, scratches, and
scuff marks from steel, cast iron, and acrylic tubs.
Henry in MI is right about the hierarchy of scratches!
I found that you can go right up to 1000, 1500, 2000,
and 3000 (wet) grit paper in removing a blemish
before beginning to use a polishing compound. The
benefit of this extra-fine sanding is that the
polishing part of the job is over practically before
it begins. In general, it's best to start with a
grade that is too fine than to harsh: removing scratches
YOU'VE put in can be a bit humiliating as well as
time consuming...
Good Luck with you repairs!
