    Re: Dremel

    Yes, but dremels turn very quickly and will start removing too much metal if used incorrectly.

    Make sure to use a very soft compound, like blue or red, and a very soft felt bob or dremel mounted buffing wheel.

    Re: Dremel

    if the dremel can restore watches then surely I can use it to polish my silver. Is this correct?

    Hi!,
    I do alot of Dremel work on the vintage watches that I restore.
    I would suggest getting the full range of buffing componds that are available from Caswell. You will find the one or ones that will do what you need by trial and error.
    I am a newby to Electroplating also and have learned that the stiping and polishing will determine wether or not you get a great,bad or ugly finish on your project.
    Just my 2 cents worth.

    We have a good selection of felt bobs at http://www.caswellplating.com/feltbobs.htm

    As far as plating goes, a nickel copper combo kit sounds like it would suit your needs. See http://www.caswellplating.com/combo.htm

    What supplies would you recommend that fit the Dremel rotary tool (up to 35,000 rpm)?

    I'm mainly refinishing small things like putter heads and golf stuff.

    I'd like to strip old plating and paint off and maybe sand/buff if needed, and then copper plate the items. And maybe.. nickel on top of the copper.

    Thanks!
Working...
