    Default So how are we getting on with the Silverlines?

    Not there yet but getting there.

    Attacked with a screwdriver. Need counselling every time I do this.



    50/50 after fast cut on a cutting pad and Ultrafina on a polishing pad.




    It sure is shiney though.



    Biggest issue I've found so far is the speed needed to get the marks off. It's faster than I feel comfortable with but it's probably just a confidence thing.

    Sorry about the huge pictures. Forgot to change the settings from earlier.
