vibrating plate polishing material
« on: March 14, 2019, 08:50:55 AM »
I recently had to replace the material that was used on the polishing plate of my vibrating plate.It looked like carpet so was replaced with another piece.However I am not getting the quality of polish that I was before.Still using Cerium oxide so it's not that.Anyone know what type of carpet or something else that does work.
Thanks

I think those blankets are a type of felt, they should work a treat.
Common sense isn't exactly common
