Can a scratch be buffed out of a turnlock?

  1. Is there any way to remove a scratch from a brass turnlock? I presume the brass is coated to resist tarnish and that it is the coating that is scratched and not the brass itself but am not sure.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  2. I think once the scratch is there it's there for good. Is it a deep or large scratch? Is it a smaller turnlock or one of the large Legacy turnlocks. If it bothers you enough and if it's a small one you can buy a replacement and repair it yourself.
  3. No, it's a small, shallow scratch, hence why I think it is just a scratch in the lacquer coating not the brass itself.

    I've been googling and think I have found a solution.
