With the weather we had this weekend I had time to kill, so I put together a video of the blade bait process. I've never done a video before, here it is

The silver buddies take a lot less effort than the gold, don't have to polish the nickel plated blanks or paint the lead. Thanks for the comments.

Andy,
It looks like you got the process down pretty good. Nice work. I haven't ordered any from you yet but just might have to.

Ace Hardware had a three pack of different size buffing wheels, plus an assortment of different polishing compounds. I tried a few of the polishing compounds, but what I have found to work the best on the brass blanks is Mothers aluminium polish.
