    My apologies if I missed the tool or method if you mentioned it before.
    I used wheels for the restore, I'll explain everything in a separate thread.

    I'm sure I know your technique Stefan and I couldn't agree more. It's what I call a "polished natural steel" look instead of a 'shiny mirror... plated steel look". Once again great work Stefan.

    I use a sisal wheel with Jantz medium cut and color compound to get a similar effect or you can use the fine cut to get a little more shine. It's drier than emery and is made for a sisal wheel. I use it on sewn cotton too when working up to a crocus type finish. Nice work. Looking forward to your tutorial.
