    I used to work with a guy who wast a French Polisher by trade, it was all he did until the work dried up.

    He taught me to sand progressively finer until using the finest grade of gritpaper available which he called flour grade, it literary was like a sheet if paper, only then would he start to polish.

    Col, I've had good luck with micro mesh pads for that kind of fine sanding. Something like https://www.amazon.com/Micro-Mesh-So.../dp/B003ELH7AI
