I just polished my barrel, I have to buff it quick so I can get some oil on it. I just bought a dremmel today and have a buffing wheel, what else do I use?
I dont have any wax, but I do have Cameo, and cleaning oil.
There is also some polishing compound, that came with the dremmel
Thank, Joe

I use the jewelers rouge that comes with the dremel kit. Just put that on one of those white polishing wheels (run dremel at very low speed to collect it, high speed will liquify it and spray you.) and polish away! :)

Polishing rouge is deep red, use the polishing wheel on high speed and buff away. Be sure to clean all the residue off when your done and apply light coat of oil over the area polished when you are done.

I want to take the "blued" finish off my XD9SC. I own a dremel and was planning on using it to take the finish off. What tip do I use to take it off? I understand that I use the buffing wheel and the rouge polish (need to pick up some of that) afterwards. And then some good quality coating/oil to protect it. Any recommendations for that?

your finish will be limited by how good you sanded the exposed part down. sand it down to remove the lines, then the polishing wheel and it should look purdy
