I have several minor scratches on my plastic watch dial cover. Has anyone used their Dremel for plastic watch crystal polishing? I'm guessing one of the felt polishing attachments and some type of low abrasive polish?



Thanks, Pat

I used my Dremel drill at low speed with the felt polishing wheel and some jeweler's rouge. Then buffed with a clean felt pad. It actually came out really good. I kept checking for overheating, but it was fine at the low speed.



Thanks Doug and Hannah!
