Rating:
94% of 100

Pumice stone is ideal for finishing and refinishing wood surfaces by removing scratches, blemishes and dents. Use a felt application block (#58271 or #58289, sold separately) to rub onto the surface. Rotten stone is a finer grit than Pumice stone. Use Rotten stone after Pumice stone to achieve a higher gloss. Can be used with water or a rubbing oil. Water gives a faster cutting action.

works as expected
This is a very labor-intensive operation to put a semi-gloss finish on a polyurethane finish but it is the final step after ten coats of varnish and wet sanding with 400 mesh, followed by 600 mesh and then 1000 mesh wet or dry sandpaper. While it will take a lot of work, it yields a superb finish.

Great for polish or to fill pores in open grain wood with tung oil
This gives an exceptional polish and also works well with denatured alcohol to melt a Tung oil finish and fill pores prior to the final coat

I've been refinishing the stock on...
I've been refinishing the stock on a Remington model #33 .22 rifle that sold for $5.00 in 1932. After putting on 8 coats of boiled linseed oil, I used this rottenstone on the stock, and I am blown away at the final finish I achieved! This old splinter-box of a stock, is now the nicest stock on any rifle I own, it has the older oil finished look of by-gone years. Thanks for your products!

I ordered the Felt Block 1'' X 2'' X 4'' Item #58289 to use when finishing my handmade pens and other items on the lathe. It is very hard to find a felt block this size anymore & it does wonders when finishing with the friction polish, it really brings out the shine. I have used the whole system with the pumice & rotten stone & rubbing oil with the felt block on a antique desk that I restored. It was absolutely beautiful when I finished the rubbing.I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Used it to fix a high gloss piano. Sanded down the piano, buffed it with rubbing compound, rotten stone, and swirl remover and it looks great.

My Dad told me how they used to use rotten stone to rub out a finish to perfection when he was in high school shop. I thought I would try it out. Fantastic results. It is well worth the time and effort if you want a perfect, no flaw finish. I'm just sorry I waited 30 years to try it out. Give it a shot. It's well worth it!

Can rotten stone be puffed using a lambs wool puffing pad?
Richard Y on Aug 17, 2015
can this be used for feathering filler on a dry wall?
roger c on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it is an extremely fine grit meant only to take the imperfections out of a lacquer or polyurethane finish
