Do I want to get under the "Clad"? I thought that the compounding will take off oxidation? That I need to be careful not to use too coarse a grade? Maybe you were just telling me that as long as I don't use too coarse a grade, I don't have to worry about the clad layer? Sorry for being so serious! I just really feel totally like I have read and read about polishing, but I am terrified to start! Maybe I am just taking this polish thing way too seriously!!! Thanks for being patient.

Thanks for the link to buying a cyclo... I am going to have to save up to get one.

I bought my cyclo at www.perfectpolish.com. The shipping was free.

Don't worry about getting a cyclo right now.You will have to do a lot of compounding first.Get a Dewalt DW130 and a compounding kit from Tom at above link with some F9 and F7.

Tried compounding yesterday with harborfreight polisher.It was a very hot sunny day and the polish either had no effect or would scorch aluminum.Today I rigged up my old aluminum Craftsman 1/2" drill and was very successful.I will have to buy the Dewalt as the old drill runs hot and I don't want to fry it.

A half inch drill that runs 400 to 600 RPM is best. Just bought a Dewalt on Ebay hope it gets here before I fry the old Craftsman.Amazing the difference from a polisher the Nuvite actually works as advertized, even in hot sun.
