Hehr Frames Heavy Oxidation

I have a 1952 Silver a Streak Clipper. It has 1 original Dual Pane Hehr Standard. I bought a Single Pane Hehr Standard off EBay. I have 2 Matching Hehr Jalousies, early to Mid 60's?
I am using Nuvite 9,7, C , and A.
I need more grit. Some external Oxidation chunks need I would assume is a heavy cutting compound that is aluminum safe. Recommendations ?See photos of EBay frame and Jalousies Frames.
I can't wait for some Nuvite 10. I have Industrial Paint Supply Shops...So 3M and Maguire stuff is available locally.

What was your solution? I'm working with the same heavy oxidation, and even F10 isn't getting the desired results.

Get a small 3M "flapper wheel" type paint and corrosion removal hit all the frames with it before the polish. I also use aluminum wool and fingers to get the corners and as a final clean up.

The 3M wheel did work well in removing the corrosion. I had tried many different dremel wheels and nothing worked nearly as fast as the 3M, but the trade off is deeper scratches a little beyond my comfort level since I'm working with Alclad. On the plus side this was only necessary on the upper hinge area, so it looks more brushed than polished at this time and I may just leave it that way.
