    It is really easy to brunch your mod. All you need is 1 or all of these items pollishing wheel, sand paper and brite pad(i use fine grain) the way I do it is sand it down a bit then pollish it but not all the way just enough for it to be really shiny but you can still see the scratches then I use the brite pad I brush the brite pad in what ever direction I want the design to be. If you have any questions let me know.

    Can you do this with brass? If so, does the process change at all? When doing this, how easily does the process remove any engravings? Thanks!

    It does work with brass and it is very easy to remove laser engraving

    Did you do it by hand or with help of some device?
    How much time did it take?

    I wrapped my mod with the scouring pad and twist it by hand until I got the result I was looking for. took about 3-4 mins of twisting (See image below). Make sure to have even pressure and go the same direction on the whole process so it will be more uniformed. The good thing about this is all the scratches on my mod disappeared in the process. looks brand new again and the grip on a brush finish is way greater than the polished one. You should use the scotch brite brand because I tried it with a cheap scouring pad and didn't even leave a brush finish after 10 mins of twisting.

    one more thing. the longer you twist the more finer the lines will be making it look shiny but still have a brushed look.

    Very helpful information, thank you.

    After you have gotten your desired finish , what do you guys recommend for final cleaning? Alcohol wipe down or just good old soap and water?

    Same thing you'd use to clean your mod. Dish soap and water to remove any grit or grime left by the pad, alcohol wipe down to finish.
