Finishes for Brass Fittings?
  • Hello All,
    Does anyone have any advice about finishes for the brass fittings to prevent tarnishing? (assuming you want to prevent it)

    I have never worked with brass before, and on my current (and first) clock I'm trying plain old carnaubra based wax. Any other thoughts?

    Thanks!

  • If you polish all your brass with a cloth wheel and polishing compound it will last a very long time before tarnishing. what I like to do is after bright polishing I spray with a lite spray of clear lacquer, this protects the brass for years.
