Want to polish edges of grante for outdoor countertops. Advice needed!!

Hey guys, Sorry I've been away so long.

I got two of my counters and cabinets built with the polished stone finished. I am very pleased with the results. I'll try to post a couple pics. I had good luck just working through the pads, using the 50 a LOT to round the edge off. Its pretty much a nice 1/4 round top edge on both counters.

I actually got two done, and then my landscaper didn't show up to do a front yard project I was hiring him for, so I had to stop and get on that for a month and by then it was a blistering 100 degrees. I'll have to wait till the fall to finish the third counter.

Good to hear. Looking forward to the pics. I have been working on different techniques on polishing. Also took the plunge on the Dia-Glo. That was the final ticket. Once I use the Dia-Glo I lost that "filmy" look and got a good polish. Still working on practicce pieces but getting ready to tackle a couple of high spots on my granite tiled island.

we polish but don't use any foreign diamond stuff,,, IF you can get someone for $ 10per hr, grab him up,,, how do you know he's any good, tho ????????????


if you hear it from a guy in the apron store, be VERY suspicious the mtl/method will work,,, when it time to build something together, they won't answer phones NOR help
