Can someone tell me what is the best polish to use to remove scratches on my bellmatic acrylic face?

Honestly, depending on the depth and nature of the scratches, I have used the following technique with excellent results.

600 wet sand until scratches are gone.
1000 wet sand for 5 - 10 circular passes
1500 wet sand for 5 - 10 circular passes
2000 wet sand for 5-10 circular passes
3000 wet sand for 5 - 10 circular passes - Used for sanding automative clear coat
5000 wet sand for 5 - 10 circular passes - Use for sanding automotive clear coat
Finish with a damp corner of a soft blue paper shop towel and Polywatch.

The crystal will look like new.

Another recommendation for xerapol. Use it for all sorts of things other than acrylic crystals. Headlights, worktops, scratches on watch hands. A recent 70s alarm clock. Very gentle.

Buffing mop on my bench grinder and acrylic buffing compound (white) or as some call it 'soap'!:)


I buffed the deep scratches out of a customer's Omega Speedmaster last week - after he'd run over it !!:eek:hmy:

For acrylic I start with 800 grit for deep scratches, 1200 grit if not, then move up to 2000, 4000 and finish with white toothpaste.
