I appreciate this is an odd one and not stalking related. However, I am sure that someone on the site will have experience and tips.
I recently bought what I think is a WWII Naval shell case. It is shaped like a shouldered bullet case, except its about 750 mm high and about 200 mm across at the base. I want to put it next to the front door and keep my sticks and wading staff in it.
However, the case is currently very tarnished. In order to convince Mrs DB that it is a welcome addition to our home I need to polish it up. I tried Brasso and after half an hour of quite vigourous polishing I had managed a dull shine on a patch about 2 inches square. I am reluctant to use proper abrasives like wire wool or wet and dry as I don't want to cause damage.
Does anyone have any tips for polishing up large areas of heavily tarnished brass.
Thank you for your help.
