Our Aluminium Polishing Kit (drill-mounted) takes all the hard work out of restoring Aluminium surfaces or objects. Simply mount your Copper polishing mops to your drill using the mandrel supplied. Use the polishing compound supplied, and watch your Copper surface or object return to a brilliant shine as you restore it to its former glory (without all the hard work!).
The rapid drill-mounted Aluminium polishing kit is also suitable for polishing other non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, brass, copper, nickel (see our other kits for polishing ferrous metals such as steel and iron).

How to assemble the drill-mounted aluminium polishing kit
The Mandrel works with a reverse thread nut, sandwich the wheel between the two washers and mount onto the mandrel.
Tighten the reverse thread nut (the reverse thread on the tool means it won’t come undone as the tool spins on your drill).
Attach the end of the mandrel to your drill. The mandrel fits most basic drills.
How to use the drill-mounted aluminium polishing kit
Start with the dry sisal (roughest wheel) if you have scratches and marks to remove. Use the rough wheels with the darker compound. We recommend clamping the compound to a G clamp. Spin the wheels it against the cutting compound to load. Compound will melt and coat the wheel. Work over the Copper surface ensuring you keep moving. Move on to the white stitched mop next. At this point you can either use cutting compound or polishing compound. Use the softest mop with lighter colour polishing compound for the final process and see the reflective shine appear in the brass.
ALWAYS test the copper-polishing kit on a test surface before use. Abrasive mops and compound can cause damage to soft and pliable surfaces, and change the appearance of surfaces and objects.
ALWAYS follow the instructions of your power tool.
ALWAYS use personal protective equipment. Use of googles and gloves is recommended. Please Tie back loose cloths and hair.
Metal work is a dirty job so please bare this in when choosing, making safe and cleaning your work area. An appropriate ventilation system is recommended. Always clean the area after use, using an appropriate vacuum system. Micro-plastics can be released as the nylon cleaning disk degrades – so please contain and clean up the particles to prevent escape into the environment.
