All the mops, fittings and compounds you'll need to work in horn, antler and related non ferrous metals.
Preparatory compound with fine abrasive content for use with sanded horn, antler and process finished non ferroues metals and plastics. Use this to initiate "shine" and progress to "Vonax" for final sparkle.
High gloss finishing compound for use following use of Lustre on horn, antler, plastics and non ferrous metals. Use in mechanised setup only. A bit like "Brasso" in a bar!!
Which is which
False noses (see top in photo) enable a bench grinder to be adapted for use as a polishing machine. Strip the guards and stones off and secure the noses (sleeve on fitting - grub screw retention). When correctly fitted mop will rotate towards you in order that any "snatch" of workpiece from your grasp propels it towards the floor and not up into your face!!!!
Guarding upon adaptation is an important safety consideration!!!
Grinders will handle all of the mop sizes we sell - for larger diameter mops simply raise the grinder on a wooden block.
Pigtails (single - bottom in photo) enable use of mops with a veice secured electric drill. Best to have one pigtail per mop as they take a very very tight grip!! Fit most domestic chucks to 1/2"
Mixed grade fabric mop incorporating linen and cotton. All 1" working width and in the following diameters.....
3" - smallest - best for "inside lines" on handles
6" - handy "all rounder", perfectly satisfactory for lighter grinders where you do not wish to overstress the bearings.
8" - by far the most popular mop, it's 4 inch "reach" enables most handles to be polished to the centre mark, meaning that very few "nooks" are inaccessible!!!
10" - this 1/2" working width mop in fine and "floppy" in use and reaches (flexibly) a little further than the 8" if you are doing a lot of handles.
4 lap Scotchbrite mop, produces "satin" like surface effect when used gently on horn, saves a lot of time on sandpapering!!!
We DO NOT ship horn or wood to outwith the EU...specifically to the USA, Canada or Australia as there are potentially Customs issues.
