It looks more like the Bakelite had browned, which usually comes right of with some fine steel wool. Its more on the very top layer that Bakelite browns, pitted I am thinking an orange peel that a WE receiver cap will get. Just asking.....looks great....Doug

My buffing method however is unorthodox since I don't have a buffing machine (no room to store or use it) but use the wheel on a drill. Lacking a workshop, I find it convenient to do buffing work over my bathtub so that the mess is contained. When done the debris can be vacuumed up. Not the ideal way to buff but it gets the job done given the circumstances.
