These are some of the most popular works by W.R. Smith
Rub N Brite$20.00
Years ago, David Rubin made one of the finest metal polishes available—Rubin Brite. Unlike many polishes, it also protected the mirror finish it produced with a heavy coating of hard carnauba wax, which lasted for years.
Like Rubin Brite, my polish polishes rapidly to a mirror finish and leaves a hard, protective coating of carnauba wax. It is an excellent polish for un-lacquered brass, silver, copper, pewter, chrome, nickel, aluminum, stainless steel and jewelry. It is quite rewarding to see the mirror finish come to life during the final treatment with a soft cloth and biscuit flour or starch. This is a real solution for those who loved Rubin Brite and have longed for a replacement polish.
This manual contains all of the articles (except serials) written by W. R. Smith and published in The Home Shop Machinist, Projects In Metal, and England’s The Clockmaker during past years. It is 8-1/2 x 11, with 108 pages and is comb bound to lie flat.
