    Good things can happen!

    As some of you may know, and many won't, along with PPC computers, another interest of mine is "woodturning". Part of the finishing process of my wood pieces involves a 3 stage buffing process using 8" buffing wheels with medium, fine, and ultra fine buffing compounds.
    Looking at my recently acquired MDD and the usual scuffed and scratched acrylic handles got me to wondering how they'd react to this buffing process.
    Well the end result is nothing short of spectacular, they look as good as new, and it only takes a few minutes to do each handle.
    I was able to even buff out some fairly deep scratches on the bottom foot supports.

    Now you're going to get addicted to buffing EVERYTHING. :p

    That's already crossed my mind, it's only 4 screws to take a side panel off, kinda like buffing the outside surface of a 20" salad bowl.
