  • May be applied with a soft cloth, felt rubbing block or a low-speed electric buffer
  • This product is not available in the Pasadena, Torrance Orange and Ontario stores due to AQMD VOC requirements.

I was looking for a polishing...
I was looking for a polishing product that would go onto my foam buffing pad easily, and after reading the review and description on here, it sounded like it would give me what I wanted. After trying it out for the first time, I couldn't be much happier with the results. Something I found out, though, is that it's essential to have a nice evenly sanded finish before you polish. If one spot has not been sanded enough with the same grit as the rest of the piece, it will not be as glossy even with the polish. However, once I made sure to get the finish reasonably flat and evenly sanded to about 2000 grit, this stuff worked wonders. I used my Porter Cable polisher with a foam pad on a medium speed, and it only took two rounds of polishing the surface thoroughly to get a high gloss. The dried excess comes off fairly easily with a clean paper towel and doesn't leave any streaks or residue on the surface once it's all wiped off. Overall this stuff is outstanding and I can't wait to use it on future projects. Definitely recommended!

I purchased the buffer's polish after...
I purchased the buffer's polish after a reccomendation from my father who has done woodworking as a hobby for the last 10 years. I currently have been doing woodworking for the past two years, and was completing a very high end shadow box and was looking for a professional finish. Since then I have used it on several other projects. I have used it on shellac, polyurethane, and varnish and got the same results no matter what type of clear coat I used. Mirrored finish every time. Application and clean up are easy and not much polish or effort is required as long as you wet sand first to remove any runs, brush marks, or if spraying, orange peel. It will leave a mirrored finish that you can read the fine print on the lable in. Well worth the minimal cost.

I finished a jewelry box with Behlen stringed instrument gloss lacquerer and having a round top and running out of the product I ended up with some overspray on the top. Would this polish bring it back to a high gloss?
Tom Zarnoth on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I always use Behlens Buffer's Polish as the final step in guitar finishes, it will produce a beautiful finish. However, to perfectly level the overspray you'll want to wet sand very gently with 1000 grit paper, then 2000, then use the Buffer's polish to shine it up. Another good tip, when using aerosol sprays, try to plan it out so you're using a can that is at least 1/2 full at the end of your project. Most problems come at the end of the can.
I have used this on Behlens spray lacquer, will it also work on a Waterlox finish?
Tom Zarnoth on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have never used it on a Waterlox finish, but it has been my experience that trying Buffer's Polish in light amounts usually tells whether it will work on any given surface. I am constantly surprised on many different finishes it works great on.
