I just got my first stropping/polishing compound block. I have never applied this stuff to anything. How do you do it? I have a new buffing wheel to put in my drill and a naked leather strop. Also, Dremel buffing felt things. I bought it intending to use it for polishing scales, metal and stuff like that. Not necessarilly for stropping a knife edge. But, I have held scales in my hand and rubbed them on strops to polish them. So, applying this to a naked strop is ok with me. I left one I recently made bare for my razors but I don't care for whatever specific leather this is to be left bare. It seems to have no abrasive quality at all. If I don't put this compound on it I'll at least put some .1 micron spray on it. Some bare leathers make a nice strop. Bare kangaroo is awsome. This stuff is about useless without any diamond spray or something. I'm assuming I just rub the block on leather, turn the drill on (slowly) and let the spinning buffing wheel rub against the block and same with the Dremel felts. Since I'm assuming I figured I'd rather ask and LOOK stupid than prove it by doing something wrong and ruining something. Any help?
