    i would think to just get a polish wheel...plug it in and start polishing..then probably get some wheel polish or something and finish it off...thats my guess..

    I bet you can get some type of bit for a power drill.
    And you would need some paste or some type of polishing media, and time and patience.

    It's a LOT of work to make it turn out good. A LOT.

    If I wanted something polished I'd take it to a polisher. There's a guy here locally that's been doing it forever and has some large contracts. He can get just about anything to a mirror finish.
