Well it depends do you want a mirror finish look or a clean metal road tar free tip? If you dont want it polished- good old scotch brite cleans up tips like you wouldnt believe with little effort. If you want a mirror look- I would scotch brite it, then clean the metal off with solvant, then compound it out. I personally like the clean metal look instead of a chrome mirror finish look.

Bead Blast, Grit Blast, Scotch Brite, or Aluminum Oxide.


I am fortunate, working in a large machine shop has its advantages.

Mineral spirits and 0000 steel wool works wonders.
