I will start a new thread with before and after pictures. Some of my buffs are just terrible right now. Really matted, full of brass and aluminum particles, just awful. I have been thinking about buying a buff-rake for about 25 years but have never actually had one. I don't want to try it right now, because my lathe and machine shop are clean as a whistle, and I just know this is going to be a filthy job.
Definitely, the rake throws up a bit of a particle cloud, good time for dust mask and vacuum.

From what I'v seen of polishing shops at foundries, you really need another workshop in an other building, they are usually a right old mess, with fluff hanging from the rafters,and all up the walls.   Ian S C
