I went to my local watch repairman today and had my new, to me, Hamilton checked either to replace or buff the crystal. He took it into his back room and I could hear the sound of what sounded like a bench grinder with a buffer wheel on it and in about two minutes he came out and my crystal, which had numerous scratches, looked brand new.
He only charged me five bucks and I was quite happy with his service, however, I would like to be able to use my own buffer pad on my grinder. I was wondering what type of machine those of you here use and what type of compound would you use on a buffing wheel. I would also guess that the speed would be important so as not to heat up the plastic.
If there is a way to pull certain topics up on this forum I am sorry, however, I could not find it.
