Direction

  • Working with hand pads is usually time consuming, but it also affords a feel and an intimacy with the glass that's not usually possible with more elaborate tools.
  • As with most grinding and polishing operations, a typical job calls for using a succession of grits, from coarse to fine.
  • Diamond hand pads are color coded.
  • Start with  180 grit, then proceeds to 260, and 360.
  • Usually 600 grit is about as fine as people use with hand pads on glass; this won't leave a highly polished surface, but it will leave a nice satin sheen.
  • Regardless of the grit you're using, be very cautious if you're working close to areas that you don't want to work with the hand pads.
  • The pads will quickly scratch shiny surfaces.
