Notes on Old Miser Compound: Old Miser is a binding agent designed to hold grit to a workpiece so that it is not thrown off by centrifugal force or washed away by water. This compound assists by quickly making a slurry and holding the grit to the stone thereby speeding up the process and saving grit. Old Miser is water-soluble and washes off the specimen easily. Pays for its cost many times over in grit and time saved.
Notes on Cerium Oxide Polishing Compound: Cerium Oxide is a versatile polishing compound that can be used for polishing a wide variety of stones and even glass. Cerium is the perfect starter polish and will not break the bank. All Cerium grades work best with leather for stones and felt for glass. Simply mix the polish with a little water to create a thin paste and apply generously to the polishing surface. Use minimal water to keep the piece cool, and prevent washing away of good Cerium during polishing.
