    question re brushed bracelet refinishing

    Does anyone know the best type of sandpaper (or other?) to refinish a brushed bracelet? Wet/dry? Carborundum? Grit?
    Thanks for any advice

    The Premier Scratch Removal Solution for Fine Watches

    Has graduated grades in the perfect size plus a cloth with rouge.

    Scotchbrite pads work well too, both the ones with the yellow sponge backing and a bit stronger is the thinner, all green pad. Nail buffing boards too.

    Do a search for "scotchbrite" "watchbandrenew" "sandpaper", there should be loads of stuff.

    Aside from the kit I mentioned above, I have had and seen success with Scothbrite in two different "grades", the one with the yellow backing and a different one that is completely green and thinner and is slightly more abrasive.
    Emory boards, nail blocks in different grades, fine grit sandpaper in different grades, ink erasers and likely more. Of course, use at your discretion because who knows how all of these will work out and what condition the metal is in.
    Remember, you are removing metal and it's always best to remove the least amount possible.
    The kit mentioned above is fairly priced IMO and is seemingly proven. Search "Scothbrite", "scratch removal", "refinishing" etc. here and on the net and see what turns up and please report back with any other successful solutions.

    I appreciate it. I think I'll try some fine grit sand paper on the pushers.
