Default Metal polishing kits

I should have a Flex tool soon. Looking for jewelry polishing burrs, brushes, felt wheels, small rubber wheels, etc. Latest project are rings. Working on removing and polishing small scratches from the inside surface of the ring core. Please recommend a full kit. I have the polishing compounds.
Also.... how are you removing the excess CA from the ring core. Thanks. Frank

Great suggestion. I was unaware of their website until that suggestion and see a few items I may pick up over time. As for how I remove CA. I typically use either an Exacto knife or my smallest chisel and carefully run the edge against the inner ring core and/or edges to ensure all of it is removed. Then, I polish (currently) with the Barry Gross buffing wheel system using the blue compound, although sometimes, I just grab the Dremmel and a smaller buffing wheel for inside the ring core. hope that helps.

Widget Supply has some of the stuff you are looking for. I found that their quality is okay, and their prices beat most rotary supply dealers. Look under the Dremel tools, most of the handpieces will accept this size.
