Nyalox and Headstones, Parts 2 and 3

Nyalox and Headstones, Parts 2 and 3

Information from Part 1 can be seen here.

In Part 2 I used an orange, medium grit Nyalox wheel brush on a corded drill. This is taught as the first step of polishing the stone after it has been cleaned.

Once again we see about one-hundredth of an inch removed from the stone. The reading after cleaning was 1.61″. See Phase 1 for photographs.

Part 3 was done using the blue, fine grit Nyalox wheel brush on a corded drill. The finer grit removed negligible amounts, if any. With the blue brush I started to see a smooth shiny surface appear.

How anyone can claim these brushes do not remove stone material is beyond me. If they aren’t I would really like to know how I got stone dust on my fingers from rubbing the stone after polishing it.
