Polishing Silverware

I mentioned some weeks back, having received half of my parents' silver service for 12.  Today, I polished it, using a buffing wheel that goes into drill press.  I had some buffing command specifically for soft metals like silver, but Mother's MafgPolish worked much better.  Mirror finish in many cases.

You think of the aluminum oxide that ends up on the buffer as black, until you buff silver.  Silver oxide is truly BLACK, unlike aluminum oxide which is more dark gray.
