Polishing my draupnir


#1

Is there a way to polish it with simple household items?

My draup is lookin really dank right now and I wanna get it shining ASAP.


#2

Fine (0000) steel wool and metal polish, such as Never-Dull will work just fine.


#3

Two questions:
I assume it has to be specifically aluminum polish? Target and walgreens(ones I went to) had an assortment of silver, gold, platinum, etc. polishers but no aluminum

Do I have to use steel wool with it?

Normally you use the steel wool by itself, then finish off with the polish. I use Turtle Wax polishing compound and scratch remover found in a hardware store or automotive store. Nevr-Dull polish works well. I think the polish for silver and gold etc will work. An auto parts store will probably have some specifically for aluminum for polishing wheels.

Ok so I’m going to get some Never dull this weekend

Is the tarnishing easily removed or somewhat permanent


#8

both the Never-Dull that the Iosso cream are excellent products,but do not be fooled, the 7075 is a type of aluminum that is oxidized in contact with the air and then you will obtain a good result but will not be long-lasting.

As long as its not like permanent damage, i can live with it.

Well, it is an abrasive. Best to mask or go around things you don’t want affected.
