Nooks and crannys

Can anyone suggest a tool to polish small areas that you cant get a large buffer in? The dremel is too small a polishing pad, they don't last long and are expensive.

Get an inexpensive air powered 1/4" die grinder, use the same wheels designed for drills but turn the speed down a bit. Better speed than a drill. Harbor Freight sells a small polishing set with compound for about $3 on sale regularly and it works great in small/awkward places.

Just the Ticket

The smallest polishing solution we have come up with is to use a Dremel tool...we use the new 4200 with quick connect and 1/8" buffing attachments from:

Shank-Mount Buff Bobs - TP Tools & Equipment

These will do a fine job in tight spaces such as between the lettering on the end caps.
