I had to ask myself the same question. I thought it was make up for
So many variations, cloth, compound and then colors. Jeez, I'm lost.
Brasso will work (my choice Drill Seargeant!). I like the comment of
checking the back side. That would cut some work down, just by turning

At least take a look-see.
It looks like a big clump of hard clay, you rub it on a rag then use
the rag to rub the metal to a high polish.
When I was a kid my granny would pay me to sit a polish her silverware

Rouge is an abrasive polish. There are different grits. Sold in
hardware stores or possibly a jewerly store. But I would use Brasso
for polishing brass, then apply lacquer to help prevent future
I've been using red rubbing compound for polishing firearm trigger
mechanisms in order to smoothe them out. Is this the same type of rouge as
jewlers rouge in a semi-pasty state? It sure puts a mirror finish on parts
after stoning the high spots off.
