I've delaqcuered many horns and used steel wool in the finishing process and fortunately for me this has never been a problem. Nothing like a power shower to shift all the crud off afterwardsDougR said:Some people are very very nervous of steel wool on brass - it can leave tiny pieces of steel ambedded in the surface of the brass - if this ever meets water you get the most hellish looking mess and the steel rusts...
No, clear nail varnish with brown paint. I had a beautiful Dark gold lacquered Buffet SDA with a blemish on the lacquer on the bell lip. Covered it a treat, followed by a buff with some rubbing compound on a cloth, the blemish was virtually invisible. Rubbing compound is also very good for repairing skipping CD's too !!MMM said:Thanks Russ,
