I would guess that those mothers powerballs and a drill might work but I have never done it.

You can get aluminum deoxidizer, too. Never used it, but should save some work.

The Mothers Power Balls work great. Need a fast drill, though. An electric would be the best. Wears down an older battery pretty quick. The electric drills are faster, too.

Definetely need the electric drill for the Mothers Power Ball. I tried with a cordless drill, and you couldn't even tell where I had polished hardly. :shrug:

Flitz polish and a mothers powerball made my toolbox shine like new. The NXT stuff works too, but not as well as the Flitz on waterspots and oxidation.....

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
