Polishing compounds (Also known as buffing compounds),
are fine abrasive fillers combined with greases and
formed into solid bars, pastes, or liquids. In the axle
modifications, they are replaced by the highest grit
level sandpapers. Finishing compounds, however, such
as Jeweler’s Rouge, Fabulustre, or Blue Magic represent
the highest level of buffing for fine and precious
metals. They will bring out the maximum luster and
create a mirror like finish to your axles.
Blinding finish and blinding speed!
Fabulustre is a solid material sold in tubes and is
applied with a buffing wheel such as a chamois.
The buffing wheel is attached to a mandrel as shown in
figure 1 which allows one to use the wheels with a
