  • Brushed SS Finish

    I was looking for something to apply a brushed look to stainless. What is the best way to do that?

    Barrel wire brush, sand paper, scotch brite pad. Depends what grain you want.

            Yup... not for the faint hearted..

            but you can buy the wheels individually and mount them on a hand grinder...

              I use the red 3M pads on an inline body sander. Works great, finish is very near a factory finish.
