    Which is the best type of polish liquid? Which is the best cloth or tool to polish? How much time should a good polishing take and wat are the movements? (circular?) And is it any best when using electric tools rather than your hand cloth/ non electrical tool when the final polish is given? (appart from cost & time) Thanks for reading

    I use a metal cleaner, i don' t remember the name. My mother use it to clean copper, silver, tin, etc... I just rub the slingshot( superglue finish) with any piece of cloth i have until it is nice. Joerg use chrome polish( paste). You should read Ryan' s topic about sandpaper/finishing <a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t1167-general-sandpaper-finishing-discussions" class="postlink">HERE</a>. That should help.

    I used beeswax. Put on the fork and then rubbed with a white shirt. I say white, because some other clots left tiny fibre that were visible and the fork looked untidy. Now I first tried something for chrome polishing and it works better than when only beeswax was applied.<br><br>The question is how long the shiny finish survives when the slingshot is used..

    I've used tooth paste to polish metal before. I think any polishing compound would work as long as it's not pigmented. ( unless you want to add color). <br>Common silverware polish around here is Brasso. <br>Baking soda slurry would work too. <br>Also depends on what finish you are trying to polish. <br>Too make it a bit faster, you can get smallish cotton buffing wheels that are on an arbour. They chuck up into a hand drill. Make a holder for you drill or clamp it in a vise and buff away. You can make your own to if you are so inclined.
