Here here on the Magic Juice! I go thru the Abranet mesh sanding sheets up to 1,000 grit, then switch and polish with the 6 grades of Magic Juice. I don't even have to buff as the last grade of Magic Juice does better than Caswell fine and extra-fine compounds.I did a few variations of the same thing for 10+ years... Then a friend of mine gave me a set of "Magic Juice" polishing liquids to try and it was a game changer.
In the past I'd wet sand with 800,1200,2000 work by way through the 6 or so grits of 3M polishing paper (You know it as Zona possibly) then use two different 3M polishing compounds. It worked but it was certainly a lot to go through.
After trying Magic Juice from Stadium blanks I'm hooked. I still do my 800,1200,2000 but then I just go through the 6 grits of the liquid abrasive using a microfiber towel with my blank on the lathe and it looks as good or better as anything I've taken to a buffer. Once I found out what he's rebottling it made a lot more sense. It's basically one of the best liquid abrasive products on the planet that runs $180 per "grit" in the full bottle form. Thankfully a little goes a long way and him rebottling it makes it a lot more approachable than having to spend $1k+ on a good liquid abrasive system.
