Now that's a new one on me, can you get this at a regular store or is it a specialty item?

I use "Speedy".
It is a metal polish used by truckers. I think that it works great on brass, aluminum and stainless.

Sorry, I just saw your reply. Typically it has been known as a specialty item. I was able to find it at a custom car store, but it is also used for cleaning up and polishing antiques, coins, and other items. Do a websearch for Wenol or try calling to some custom automotive placesm they should have it if they know what is good I use the kind in the red tube and it does work very well when used with a dremel or polishing/buffing wheel.

I've used Mother's on brass to get from a steel wool finish to a point where brasso can be used. Mother's is fairly abrasive, so you wouldn't want to use it on tolerance parts or you'll risk taking too much off.

WENOL is the king. Pretty expensive.

Theres 2 or 3 types..theres auto wenol in a blueish tube that is less abrassive and leaves a coating to keep your brass from insta tarnishing, and theres the standard kind thats in an orange tube, more abrassive.

I keep one of their distributors cards in my wallet, number is 760 731 3200 if you cant find the stuff online, that guy is in california.

For polishing insided of brass barrels get one of those gigantic 12 gauge shotgun cotton swap things, they are like 3 or 4 feet long and all soft besides the tip has a plastic brush, cut off the bristles on the brush and slide that sucker inside your barrel with some wenol and it will appear almost white its so shiny

sorry to resurrect a dead thread, but I want to polish my PMI-1 and I'm not quite sure where to get brass polish. Where do I get brasso since that seems to be the preferred polish around here?

Any decent hardware store should be able to set you up. You might even be able to get it at Walmart. Or, if those fail you look in the phonebook under "Marine" and find a boating store. They'll carry all sorts of brass polishes.
