In Response To: Re: Restore brass barometer dial bezel (James Schooley)

There are some great non ammonia based metal polishes out there that should shine up the brass bezel fine, if you don't have ..or don't want to use a power tool...My favorite is Met-All Industries Brass and Copper polish. This stuff is a museum quality restorative polish for fine Brass and Copper surfaces. I buy it through a dealer in CT that specializes in Antique Copper and Brass items. www.met-all.com...Mother's car care company makes a paste polish called Mag and Aluminum polish that works great on brass. It comes in a small white can. Simichrome is another great one...be aware that 0000 steel wool will clean the brass but it will also scratch it and give the brass a brushed appearance rather than a bright polished appearance.Antique brass fittings can be quite soft..any scratching from steel wool can then be polished out,but better not to have to
