Default polishing

I'm new in the world of gunsmith and about to take on a project of bluing and polishing a sks.

My question is what is the best compound and type of wheel to use to use to polish a rusted bolted and other silver part.

Brownells and MidWayUSA both sell products to suit your needs. Brownells caters more to the gunsmithing in my opinion and would be the first place I'd look. The main thing you're gonna need though will be a good (and I do mean good) bench motor to run your wheels with. You will also require a seperate wheel for each type of polishing compound. I've got three seperate wheels in my setup..
