Anybody have any comments regarding how to best ”pad” an anodized raised patterned disc without removing the unraised background, near its edges for example? Which Micro-mesh Soft Touch pad grit typically works the best?
It seems just the slightest pressure in an effort to remove the first anodized background layer off the raised pattern surface also tends to mar the unraised area too. The coarser the pad, the worse it is. Seems there is an ”optimum” grit that hits only the raised pattern, leaving the background in tack, while having enough ”bite” to get the job done without overdoing it and marring the background.
Making a lot of scrap and little finished product.
