Surfin X fine polishing paste
Surfin X fine polishing paste is a mix of walnut oil, beeswax, candelila wax and carnauba wax with an abrasive powder of diatomaceous earth. The abrasive particles contained therein become increasingly smaller during polishing and therefore grind finer and finer. It is therefore a kind of liquid sandpaper that gradually gets a finer grain. You can use Surfin X fine if you have sanded up to grit 400. (higher works better, but higher than 600 is really not necessary. When you’re done, the surface looks like it was sanded with grit 2000. All ingredients are mixed without solvents . Surfin X fine is odorless and leaves no harmful traces Surfin X fine can be used for sanding and finishing children’s toys, but also for fruit bowls, for example.
How to use.
Make sure that your workpiece is neatly turned and that there are no pressure marks from the chisel. Sand your workpiece to a minimum of 400 grit. With each grit, make sure that the traces of the previous grit are sanded away. If necessary, use a sanding sealer with grit 240 or 320 to make the surface harder and smoother. Apply Surfin X fine with a piece of kitchen roll or a cloth on a stationary machine. Make circular movements with the cloth or kitchen roll so that the pores of the wood are also filled. When the entire surface has been smeared, start the bench at a low speed. (15 cm diameter approx. 500 RPM) Use the same cloth or paper towel and press firmly on the rotating workpiece. Gradually the speed can be increased. You can feel the paste sanding and you will feel that the abrasive grain becomes finer. Once you are happy with the surface, wipe off any excess with a clean cloth. When no more paste gets into the cloth, you are ready to apply a finishing layer in the form of an oil or wax or varnish.
Before you use Surfin X fine you can also sand with Surfin. You can then sand to grit 320 then sand with Surfin and then polish with Surfin X fine.
Surfin can also be used as a final finishing coat. When you’re done with the polishing paste, don’t brush off all the wax, but leave it in place. The carnauba wax ensures that there is a hard wax layer on it. But of course you can also finish with e.g. Danish oil or improved wood oil or shell wax.
Surfin X fine is also very suitable for polishing a high-gloss paint. To do this, apply the Surfin X fine to the fully cured lacquer layer as described above and remove the wax from the lacquer after polishing. Absolute high gloss…
Yorkshire Grit is conceived and created by Glyn Senior. He is a wood-turner and lives in… Yorkshire. The abrasive paste he makes consists of mineral oil, beeswax and very fine abrasive powder. The abrasive powder consists of 2 kinds of stone. Pumice stone and very finely ground “rotten” stone. During use, the abrasive particles become smaller, resulting in a finer sanded surface. It is therefore a kind of liquid sandpaper that gradually gets an increasingly finer grain. Yorkshire Grit can be used if you have sanded to grain 240. (320 works better, but higher than 400 is not necessary. When finished, the surface looks like it is sanded with grain 1000. All ingredients are mixed without solvents. Yorkshire Grit does not smell.
How to use.
Make sure your workpiece is neatly twisted and there are no pressure marks in the chisel. Shed your workpiece up to minimum grain 240 and up to 400. Make sure that the spores of the previous grain are sanded away. If necessary, use a sanding sealer to make the surface harder and smoother. When the sanding sealer is dried, apply the Yorkshire Grit with a piece of paper o.id. On a stationary machine. Make rounded movements with the lap or paper so that the pores of the wood are also filled. If the whole surface is lubricated you start the bench at a low rpm. (15 cm diameter about 500 rpm) Use the same cloth or paper and firmly push it on the rotating workpiece. Gradually the speed can be raised. You will feel the pasta sanding and you feel that the abrasive grain becomes finer. Once you are satisfied with the surface you wipe the excess of the surface with a clean cloth. If there is no more pasta in the canvas you are ready to make a finish in the form of an oil or wax or Hampshire Sheen.
Yorkshire Grit is a preparation for the final finish. When you are done with the barn paste you bring the final finish. In The following film is that Hampshire Sheen, but it can also with e.g. Danish oil or improved wood oil or shellawax. [Embed] https://www.youtube.com/watch? v = N8h3tu4GtyE [/embed]
