Hello
Can anyone polish up a Westinghouse Tank guard and blade for me? I have a buffer at hand but don't even want to try on those guards..

Trust me, do the cage by hand with steel wool. I love mirror shine brass blades, but you might be surprised how good a cage rubbed with 0000 wool looks. I can buff the blade for you, but if you have a buffer, I suggest you give it a try. Just be careful around the edges. There is info available to show you the way...

A dremel tool with polishing wheels can hit those tight spots

Decided to give it a go by hand. After 2 hours and a lot of mothers and elbow grease it's looking good. Not perfect but it's getting there. I'll have to repaint the tag.

As was said, use a dremel with a buffing head and some FLITZ metal polish and it will gleam! Or skip the dremel and just use the FLITZ with some rags and you'll get a brilliant shine.
