    Jan 02, 2022 When polishing I start out with a light drip on the sphere using Velcro diamond pads and adapters (see above) or cut pieces inside of PVC pipe cups. After the spots are gone, I start with 200 or 300 mesh advancing to 500 , 1000, 1500 for about 20 minutes each step and then 3000. After a half hour the sphere should have a bright polish at 3000 mesh pads

I was always amazed that I could produce a sphere from that set-up
