    How do you get rid of the tool marks on the metal after you’re done? I’ve tried using more/less polish, polishing lighter/harder, polishing multiple times, and I’ve tried polishing with quicker/slower strokes. I only have a one-speed, so maybe the bit is moving too quickly/slowly, so any information? would be appreciated.

    i have a 4000 and i rubbed polishing compound that? came with it on my shiny 1st gen ipod touch back and polished it all different speeds and ways and it still looks like brushed chrome…

    Can the felt tips be? reused or are they one time use?

  10. NamesROverated says:

    around? $100

    WHY is this not recommended for chrome?

    Is there something else I can use with my Dremel,? for chrome?

  12. efahrenholz1 says:

    Getting rid if tool marks requires softer polishing. You could use? water to blend in tool marks with rough abrasive polish. I haven’t used the polish that came with mine. I actually use 3M rubbing compound, with enough passes it will give it a mirror finish.

  13. elstado1 says:

    agreed. I have a whole bunch of? chrome bike parts to polish and i would hate to do it by hand since I have a Dremel 400 at my disposal.

  14. Trimere says:

    It’ll? only take you all day to polish one thing. *smh*

  15. sharonie11 says:

    Can this be used to buff/polish sterling silver? Should I use a different speed, accessory? tool head or different compound?

  16. Belruen says:

    It is not recommended for chrome because the chrome is a plating on? top of the metal, and the abrasiveness of polishing with a dremel tool can wear the chrome off the metal or cause chipping if it heats the area and it warps.

  17. cableaddict says:

    Thanks for? that clarification.

  18. Kevin Cullen says:

    This would? be a good tool for polishing the hard to reach area’s. For general polishing just do it by hand and use an aggressive polish. The polish they were using looks like a final colouring polish not a 1st step polish compound. Colouring compound is for clarity or the final step.

    There was no compund put on the bit, and the bowl was covered in light? dirt for the demo

    I`ve used this as a toothbrush for years! Despite no longer having teeth, I found it useful to remove anything unwanted in the mouth. This includes, plaque,? bacteria, teeth or lips.
