Default Brushed Aluminum

When I've done it by hand, I use a scotchbrite pad and simply stroke in a single direction. You can't rub back and forth, or you end up with little J turns at the end.

I once found a scotchbrite belt for my belt sander and it worked okay on flat surfaces.

But the Eastwood Surface machine would be something I'd investigate if I were doing it again.

The trick is, perfectly straight lines.
