Wright's Brass Polish
« on: October 22, 2021, 02:28:07 PM »
Janet picked this up at a yard sale and its been sitting on my work bench. I ran out of Brasso so I thought I would give it a try.

It is amazing. I used it on a WE Fan I bought at Brimfield and the Blades just shine. It isn't cheap, Amazon has an 8 oz bottle for $24.

You wipe it on a cleaned piece of Brass, let it dry, wipe it off and it shines like new. I think of the hours I put in working on the blades and I still wasn't happy with them...Doug

Nice find.
It is good to happen on to something that "works" without the "bummer" effect of work not rewarded.

I used the Wrights on this stick, first time I ever used it.

Paint was horrible and when I stripped it, I did not hold out much hope. Didn't look very nice after stripped.

I love the steel/brass combo. It did a wonderful job.

I always use Brasso or Noxon on Bakelite, but I am going to try this next time.....Doug

This North has been in my collection for years, it was dull and looked more like dirty brass than it did copper. I was going to add a North dial to it, but it looked too horrible, so I removed it from my collection.

Today I saw it sitting on the to do shelf and I thought I would see what the Wrights would do to it.

NO Steel wool, No power tools; just Wrights and a Mr Clean bar. In less than 15 minutes it had a shine again!

I added the North dial to it. I am pleasantly surprised....Doug

That's really pretty. I love the 'rose gold' effect of polished copper. If you spray it with a few thin coats of lacquer it will prevent it from tarnishing again, and keep that great look for years to come.

I have had a Mottle Brown North handset that I purchased on eBay. I think it might have been from Ray. I cleaned out the closet in my phone room and found it!

Looks nice on the Copper North...Doug
