On September 14th 2002 Valley metal got together for a buffing and polishing demo. George Glines was kind enough to let us use his shop for this. Jim Riser came up from Tucson to teach the demo. Many things were covered. Among them were, Safety, compounds, buffing wheels, types of machines, how to buff and polish and LOTS of good food!! It was a great time, as these usualy are.
