I've often seen this substance recommended for very fine polishing of metal parts, but I've never seen it. Are there comparable metal polishing substances, or a relatively inexpensive source for it?

Howdy,

You can get it in block form at Sears for not a lot of money. If you want
to use a buffing wheel to polish parts, just hold the block against the
wheel while it spins.

If you want to polish up somethin' flat, that's been prepped with 600-1,000 grit sandpaper on glass, get an old piece of denim and work some J & B
Bore Clearner into the fabric, and lay the cloth on a hard, flat surface while
you buff.

For powdered rouge, you may have to go to a jeweler.

Whatcha gonna polish?

Luck!

You should be able to get it at Home Depot in wax/stick form.

Simichrome polish is approximately equal, as is crocus cloth, both of which you should be able to find at decent hardware stores.
