Parts I'm preping for 2 reel bodys that are with calfish. Get supplies from your local jewelry supply co. The Fabluster is super with a dremel tool. If you have to hand polish use this...

The gear teeth are what counts... the rest is for show/fun. I polish all contact surfaces and all major metal parts. When the wife saw the main gear polished, she wanted to wear it on a necklace :shock: .. Really !

The dremel bits are from the jewelry supply place. They are sold by the piece from bulk bins. I get two sizes in med and soft. Around .50 to .75 each. They wear down in use. Usually 3 or 4 per reel depending. Note* If you use the Simichrome you need to clean after buffing, it leaves a protective film. I always do a final naptha clean after any buffing/polishing.

Seems expensive for 1 brush. Also cannot tell what the brush material is or how firm it is. The bits I use are a natual fiber I believe in a med and a soft. If you want some polish bits and polish let me know and I can get some for you. Also the supplier may do mail order, I can check.

Are the dremel bits fine wire brushes? I have a bunch of them that came with my rotary tool kit but never used them because I thought they might leave marks on the gears. So they should be fine to use right.

Great Post by the way.

These are not wire brushes. They are a fiber material, may be natural or synthetic. I think they are a natural bristle.

I use the fixed brushs and these replacable ones...

Found some on Amazon. Do the wheels fit on a standard Dremel 402 Mandrel?

Can you use Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish instead of Fabulustre?

12- 1" Soft Hair

UPDATE:
They seem to be cheaper, with shipping, to buy directly from FindingKing.com.
