I've had reasonable success since posting this question.
I found that the following worked wonders....
wet the part with mineral turps prior to buffing. IE buff the part wet with turps.
Every time a bit of compound appears to be left behind, wet again.
this has produced zero haze but there has still be some minor compound residue build up.
I figure the turps is preventing the compound to stick to the piece. the cutting particles are lubed and appear to be able to work more efficiently. I might even try this when using other compounds.
I need to be some kero and I'll try that.
Unfortunately my bench grinder just died so I can't try anything.
