Id like to buff out the rust pitting in the crevices and where joints were welded.

Anyone suggest a proper Dremel attachments?

I've used NEVERDULL ( Canadian Tire ) and a tooth brush. I was quite pleased with the results. Tear off a bit and stick it in the bristles of the toothbrush, its works quite well. A small toothbrush works best.

Cheers

I thought the only thing Neverdull was used for was keeping Marine Corps recruits busy polishing our brass!:shock: At least thats all I used it for back in 77. :waving:

Poor Old Thing, the answer to your question is to buy the polishing kit that Dremel sells. It has brass and steel wire wheels, different buffing pads with compound and a variety of other things. Also, use as slow of speed as possible. That will reduce burning the area you're working on.

If you have a Dremel that has brushes, you can make a speed control for it for the cost of a 500w. dimmer, a double outlet box(room for two duplex outlets), some extension cord and couple of wirenuts. You wire the dimmer in series with the outlet. Then you can run your Dremmel at very low speed up to full speed. Very handy to have.

Be aware that if you're polishing the engine area, I believe these spots are clearcoated. You may have to go farther in than you thought to get to what you want to polish.

Thanks very much-I will see what I can find at the hardware store-Im a tad afraid to use wire wheels on CHrome but if its small enough well give it a go. SOme of my chrome (light bars around saddlebags is pretty well shot so I am not expecting any miracles.

The engine is a concern as their are areas where gasoline has spilled and sat from inattentive mechanics and caused pitting. Have you any experience with cleaning engine?

My Dremel has variable speed so I can keep it fairly slow I think.

Thanks for this recommendation-I picked some up at Cdn Tire yesterday along with some PEEK and Marvel Mystery Oil which I learned was available from this site.

I use the flex-shaft attachment on my dremel , with a scotch brite type of wheel that dremel has, then I use buffing wheels with compound to get the shine I'm after. I finish with semi-chomre.:cool:

I've picked up the scotch brite wheels & Dremel attachments at local Hardwares, Home Depot, Lowes, & such. The buffing wheels I've gotten on eBay.

Good call ex, I was issued or forced to buy a can of brasso in basic training. After a few months I found a can of nevrdull in an automotive store andfelt likeI had discovered the cure for cancer, it works so much better. I never thought to compare the marines to the army by their preferences in brass polish!
