    I’m looking for a real glossy finish for some bottle stoppers that I have turned. The stoppers are sanded to 600 grit. Currently, I apply 3 coats of EEE Ultra shine and 3 coats of HUT Crystal Coat friction finish. The finish looks good but would like a higher gloss. Suggestions appreciated.

    Let the finish cure for at least three days so it's completely hardened. Then rub the finish out with an automotive rubbing compound, the stuff that auto body repair shops use to rub out a finish.

    With all good wishes,
    Nick

    You could always try a French polish too.

    When I want a really glossy finish I use the Beal Wood buff. I really like it.
    I got one a few years ago. I re-drilled and tapped the arbor set screw hole to put in a set screw with the 5/32 Allen, Hex key to be consistent with everything else Shopsmith. I run at slow speed and always cover the way tubes. I put on a finish that will soak in like shellac and let it dry for a day. (I live in CA where humidity is low most of the time.) I then use the three Beal buffs with their compounds and wax. The Tripoli smoothes white diamond polishes, and carnauba wax shines.

    <p> but regular guys who wanted something nice, but <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>cheap wedding dresses</a> . ,reasonable., <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>wedding dresses</a> . The Big Crown Pointer Date watches come in a few styles and even in a smaller version for the ladies (,mom watch,anyone. <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>prom dresses 2012</a> . ). Prices are actually quite reasonable. You can a well-made mechanical Swiss watch for well under $1000. Of course there are version just over $1000 and at least the ladies versions come in quartz models as well. Oris watches tend to always feel like a good value, even if you get into their several thousand dollar diving watches (that are great depending on your tastes). Pictured are three of the varieties of the watch. Oris really is trying to make a Big Crown Pointer Date watch for everyone. White dial <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/Flower-Girl-Dresses.html>cheap flower girl dresses</a> . , black dial, silver dial. Little bit of decoration or without.
