What type of green chrome compound should be used on cork belts and sources for the "right stuff".

Here's the information that was posted on the SRJ Video thread. If it doesn't help, let us know, OK?

I am to the point that I use the white compound almost exclusively now and get it from:
R C H Supply Co Inc
4511 Everett Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90058-2621
(323) 583-2388

White Compound….. #SS300...... $1.24/lb 65 lb/case, $85.00/case

Green Chrome compound…. #SS306......$1.38/lb, 65 lb/case, $89.00/case

I'm not aware of any supplier that carry this compound. If anyone is, please post it, if you'd be so kind.

Knife and Gun finishing Supply carrys both of these compounds . The catalog number for
306 is AB 806 and the number for 300 is AB 852. Jim and Meg Kier gave them these numbers years ago,

Thank you, Ken. It's good to know that you have both compounds available. Thanks, also, for clearing up the numbers for them, I'm sorry I didn't know better!

Both green and white compounds have aggresssive enough grits to work on a cork wheel though the green is normally the more agressive of the two.

If you ever had the opportunity to get into the back rooms at Jackson Abrasives you would be amazed by the large numbers of different formulations available in green and white compounds depending on the application and equipment used to buff with.

Thanks, George, for the good informaiton. I was in the factory of one compound mfgr. once and was, as you were, amazed at all the different compounds and uses, etc.

Hi Guys..... How would a serious knifemaker as myself go about getting behind the doors of the Jackson Abrasives...?? Even though I make a pretty good knife and my finish is so-so, but when I look at Buster's and Steve Johnson's finish on a Blade and fittings I realize there's a bunch of stuff I need to learn out there...... I was turned onto R.C.H compounds back in the late 1960's by RWL and that's all I've used, but I know my Buffing wheels and the use there of has never been as they prescribed...... Could these people at Jackson help....?? thanks Lloyd

Nice to see you Lloyd. Unfortunately, I don't know what route you'd take to get in contact with Jackson Abrasives. Hope someone can help.
