Buffing and polishing is done by utilizing blocks and wheels in addition to specialized polishing compounds. Metal polishing is akin to using dry, then wet sand paper to smooth a surface, only much quicker. Rather than tirelessly hand sanding with many stages of sand paper to create a brilliant mirror finish, an electric sander and buffer is used along with proven and proper technique.
If you were to take a scratched and pitted metal surface and magnify this thousands of times, you would see jagged edges that refract light in multiple different directions. By using repetitive abrasion and a proven technique, these jagged peaks become smooth and appear as a more uniform surface that will reflect light evenly and produce a brilliant shine.
