Abrasives/techniques for finishing the finish?
« on: July 07, 2018, 10:02 PM »
I'm shooting Kem Aqua clear, mostly Medium Rub.

What abrasives/methods should I look at for a final buff to get out any super minor blemishes?

helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

Nothing works well. You always see the sheen change. You could lightly sand the blemish and spot spray with a preval. Very light coats work, some times.
I just respray if it's as small as a spec of dry paint that has dried into the last coat.
What do you define as a "super minor blemish"?
