Lots of brass, less in my wallet more on the table

Big brass cleaning session today, did not help we had no Brasso so Sainsburys first thing. All of the brass is / was badly tarnished so it took some effort.

A from and to photo.....

The brass polishing factory.....

Off to the boat tomorrow to see how close we are to bringing her home....but I expect to be fully engaged in putting brass back onto the boat  - and hopefully some cleaning ....Joe is bringing the two tipcats and a small button as well so that may get some attention. Oh... and I have to call in the chandlers on the way for a new long shaft and a shaft for the boat hook - both not worth trusting. The gangplank will have to be another time.

Might be some pics next week !

Looks like you had a lot of little pieces to clean! I love brass, it is so beautiful but without the proper tools to keep it maintained, it can be pretty difficult to keep brass looking its best. You did a wonderful job of getting all of those pieces to shine and bringing them back to life. They look fantastic.
