My Tips for Polishing Brass are as follows:

If very heavily tarnished then start with course wire wool, then work down a couple of grades and finish with very fine.

Then use fine wire wool with a bit if brasso.

Finally polish up to a deep shine with neat brasso, and buff to a deep shine.

Works for me!!

Cheers

Martin.

I use solvol autosol metal cleaner, it works alot better than brasso & doesn't leave marks.

if it's a first time clean and it is off the engine etc then dip it into vinegar, it turns it orange but softens it up so it polishes easyer

another good one for small steel parts of later engines, is to boil them in a sauce pan with cut rubarb for 10 minutes works a treat Very Happy
