You have to be careful use the files to a minimum so you don't cut
Once you have the shape defined ( or even before) move to abrasives.
Start with a grade that is just finer than any scratches. Move to a
finer grade as soon as you have the surface refined.
Never go back! At first you have to remove everything above the
deepest scratch Then you keep removing then the next smaller ones.
You can make abrasive files by gluing abrasive strips cut from
sheets to sticks. Abrasives remove material. At some point buff.
Buff with a finer material than your last abrasive. Buffing will
flow the surface and blend small scratches.
I think the best abrasive materials are made by 3 M who does make
and sell in the UK.
All their endless list of products are on line in the UK. The fine
diamond files are shown in the catalog.They are not expensive. I
think these are mostly made in the UK.. use the wet or dry abrasives
and use them wet as much as possible.
Polishing anything is a stepwise process and can take a while if you
have very high standards! You will have to learn what the abrasive
grading numbers mean. Remember never go back a grade!
