Doc and Alpha,

Thanks for the reminder on burnishing. And given the info on the Elliott burnisher you listed, Doc, that is pretty impressive, even to a jaded finisher.

.05-.2 microns? Zoiks!

ANSI/CAMI 2000 grit is ~15,000-ish mesh. That's about 1 micron.

This burnisher produces a finish comparable to a mesh of over 100,000.

You can get abrasives lower than that, but wow. That's mighty smooth.

But again, is this the method used for stainless?
"Dude. I'm pretty sure he's behind one of those bunkers over there."
