Walnut shells work dandee as well ...... and it seems like those darn things NEVER wear out!

Ground walnut shells do a good job of cleaning, but leave a matte, almost bead-blasted finish, in my experience. If you really want your brass to sparkle and shine, you use corncob with 2-3 capfuls of brass polish worked into it.

I never thought of using corncobs to polish my brass.

  Or a  superstorm..... Or even a Zombie apocalypse !  This might beat fighting in gas lines for two weeks without electricity, so you can get heat to the house.  NOT fun .  Of course, you might be fighting in line with the Beavers ?!  But..... Ummmmmmm....... Winter project ?

You're exactly right ...... most of the stuff that I polish, I do by hand ..... motor-sickle parts are a little easier to do that to than shootin' iron parts - which tend to be a bit smaller! That matte finish is, however, PERFECT for fasteners and the like - and stuff to be painted .....
Spare the pig iron - spoil the part!

I was thinking of in the bed of 4 cylinder pick up.  ;)

God intended wood to power steam engines.  Oil was never a problem for Robert Fulton.  Oh, he lubed his engines animal fat and whale oil.  Bacon drippings smell way more better than whale oil and is legal too!  Yay Bacon!

Just drove in past the BBQ place down the street.  Between that aroma and the sausage side car pic, I'm hungry now.

Gotta love the Coat of Arms low on the nose.  ;D
Rather than have a homeless person for the holidays, I decided to stick with ham.
