    Those grits are very fine, to impart the final finish, but any chased surface is best polished with soft brushes and compound, or you will miss the deeper parts.

    It's best you leave that poor tin alone now, because you will be well through its plating. You are no longer restoring it: more like systematically destroying it. Dennis.

    thank you Dennis , very well put. I've been working on this piece on and off for about 5 months , your explanation and careful wording to not offend me is my time to let go. Although I have learned some new skills from China which is much appreciated.

    I hope everyone who chimed in my thread is doing ok

    best wishes

    I just wanted to thank china for the support over the months. You took me under your wing and gave it everything you had. You single-handedly helped me for months which was a huge task.

    I appreciate everything you've done for me
