Snapper nice polishing job mate but doesnt your process reduce the lifespan of the rim and whats the brake performance like after polishing (assuming its rim brakes).

OK but I wont be polishing my rims due to the reduction in brake performance and life span. But I like the look of that bench grinder/polisher (Detroit) Im planning on putting together a similar setup for polishing my motorbike parts 8)
