Hello folks. This is completely outside my area.
A friend’s store front was tagged with graffiti, and the paint etched the glass so the marks are still available. I want to polish out the etched areas. What tool should I use?
The possibilities are:
- A drill/driver (probably not the best idea)
- A ROS. I have a Bosch corded and a DeWalt 20v Max.
- A sander/polisher, like that nifty M12, that I’d have to buy.
I know actual polishers would turn faster than drills, but these aren’t large areas I’m working with, and a little extra time won’t matter to me, especially since that M12 polisher is cool but not especially cheap. Also it uses a weird metric spindle, so it can’t accept common polishing disks, arbors, etc.
And the glass was just etched chemically, not physically scratched. I’m sure the etching is pretty shallow.
