Reading Adam’s post (http://antiqueradios.com/forums/Forum15 ... 00141.html) got me thinking about using deluxing compound to revitalize a dull, but intact finish. How many of you have used deluxing compound and what were the results?<P>Regards,<BR>Geoff<P>------------------<BR>

I haven’t tried using it yet. The literature states that it “produces a smooth, hard mirror like finish”. The only reason I haven’t tried it is that I don’t think that a lot of these radios had a mirror like finish to begin with. I once cleaned an Atwater Kent 856 tombstone (that had a dull, intact finish) with mineral spirits, then applied Danish oil, wiped it off, let it dry, then applied 3 coats of paste wax. I was stunned at how nice it came out. Not too shiny, just a nice warm even finish. Cleaning a dull finish this way was time consuming and required a lot of steps. I’d still like to try the deluxing compound but would like to hear more about from others that have used it first. If it really produces a mirror like finish I probably would not use it on every radio I own, just ones that probably had that type of finish to begin with.<P>But thanks for the tip Adam.<P>Regards,<BR>Geoff<P>------------------<BR>
