    I believe Caswells sells a fast cutting stainless compound, and definitely use a sisal.

    here is a link to that page

    Mboyd, you are correct, stainless steel is very hard, need the sisal wheel. I found this out when I tried polishing a gas tank on my motorcycle. All of your anxiety will go away with just a few passes on the sisal, trust me

    Polishing Stainless Steel

    I am polishing some stainless steel "nose cones." These are used to cover controls on ice cream machines. These have a reddish coating due to heat treating. The manufacturing process leaves some lines on one side that have to be removed.

    Am currently using a satin wheel to remove lines and coating followed by a medium buff using red compound to remove the satin lines followed by green compound for shine.

    This is taking a long time and we're not getting very good results. Am wondering if a sisel wheel would be better than satin. Stainless steel is very hard and think there should be a better way to work with it.

    Thanks!!
Working...
