Excellent advice, thanks Ian!

I took an old bench grinder and removed the grinding wheels, bought some polishing mops with spindle mounts and some bars of different grade polishing compounds from Cousins.

Works a treat on pewter, even done some gold and silver jewellery.

Local jeweller charges £25 to remove engraving and they send it away, I charge £20 and can do it more or less straight away!
