TIP: Spare polishing compound is available for the kit: TC04904
How to use the compounds and the buffing pad:
The adaptor is used to hold the buffing pad in the drill's chuck. Fasten the correct buffing pad in the adaptor
It would be best to use a drill press to polish metals. If a drill press is not accessible, use adaptor TCV01810 with a portable drill with a collar diameter of 43mm. Tighten the adaptor in the drill's chuck
The buffing pad should revolve towards you at full speed. Pass the compound lightly across the face of the buffing pad. To ensure that the compound is evenly spread, hold a clean piece of scrap metal against the face of the buffing pad. This will eliminate lumps of compound from occuring.
If desired, heat the item to 65°C using an oven or a heater. Warming the metal keeps the compound on the buffing pad. A cool item will draw compound from the pad and leave deposits. Use a glove to handle the warm item.
Hold the metal lightly against the buffing pad. Allow the compound to do the work.
If more compound is required, apply it using a wiping motion. Do not overload the buffing pad.
