Quote from: Doug Rose on April 30, 2011, 08:57:07 PMBakelite is very resilient and reacts well to fine steel wool. Steel wool removes the layers of age, dullness, grime and dirt. When finished with the steel wool, the bakelite will have a shine. It has a glow the the friction causes, almost a depth to it. Below are the before and after of my Mahogany North and Green North. Avon SSS bath oil is the finishing touch. ....Doug

I have never buffed bakelite as my fine steel wool and Avon SOS works fine for me. Others disagree, but ot me it is the best ting for bakelite....welcome to the Forum....Doug

You can get some here:http://www.delviesplastics.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=DPI&Category_Code=Buffing_AccessoriesI usually buy the 2.5 lb econo bar @ $9. You will need, of course, a buffer and 6" or 8" cotton buffing wheels on the same page if you don't have them already. Buffer, I believe, can be found at other venues for cheaper. But keep it the same model....By far the fastest, least elbow grease way to get it done once you get past the initial investment...
