I use to hunt coprolites up on the river when I was a kid. There are some big Jurassic fossil beds upstream that they weather out of during floods. I don't know what became of my rock polisher but I ought to go up on the river and see if I can find some and if I do get another polisher and shine them up.

I generally polish my stuff with Diamond granite and marble polishing pads and a variable speed grinder. I started using them when I was doing tile work with natural stone, then I used them to make pipes with the scraps, Then I tried them on a rusty knife and that is when I fell in love with these wonderful things, I always make sure I get the wet or dry ones.

It took me less than a minute with just the 400 grit disk to do this and if I had polished it all the way to 6000 it would have a mirror like finish.

I haven't finished it yet and I didn't take a before picture but this Cleaver was trash before I started.

I sharpen my Knives with them to a 6000 grit you can shave with them after 1500 grit. Shop tools get very sharp and very pretty.

I have a spare 6-inch grinder that's not being used. I need to put a polishing wheel on it.

These go on a 4inch grinder but it needs to be a variable speed one or they turn too fast.
