Using Silicone Polishing Pins
by Kylie Jones
These small abrasive tools are perfect for cleaning up hard-to-reach areas.
Instructions
Silicone polishing pins are tiny abrasive cylinders that clean up and polish small areas that can be difficult to access. They are designed to be used in a mandrel in a rotary tool/flexshaft/micromotor, they can also be used in a pin vise. The polishing pins come in medium/gray and fine/green and are quite small measuring 2mm x 20mm. They are flexible and don't break easily.

The mandrel is easy to use, you simply loosen the top collar and insert the pin into the collet, then tighten the collar. You don't need to completely undo the collar or dismantle the mandrel to use it. If you do manage to dismantle it, it is easy to reassemble.

The pins can be used with either end of the cylinder so you can shape one end into a point and leave the other flat. An old file is great to shape the end.

The pointed end is great for getting into tight curves so your whole design can be shiny and mark free.

The flat end is excellent for cleaning up solder on flat areas that are hard to reach.

The sides of the pin are great for cleaning up the inside of jump rings, wire designs and bezels.
