I used these exact pads to polish mine, medium, fine, and polish. They will work. Mine did not end up as nice as the other guy's here but then again I spent about two hours on each keg.

Come to think of it, the rouge or polish compound I could not find at Menards, I think that did come from the home depot.

You think their the same? They look like it, which would be great, because they have them at my store and their cheeper.

I just got done polishing my kegs last week. Took me about 12 hours for three kegs. I did use the gator pads at medium then fine. Follow with a buffing/ polishing pad that can fit on a 4 " angle grinder with a number 2 polishing stick. Sue bobs web site has great details, someone posted the link for ya. You will go through about 3-4 polishing pads per keg ( these we gator brand also) . 3M makes a great product, going all the way to 1000 wet seems like over kill. I achieved a mirror finish with the process listed at sue bobs. I didn't follow the #2 with the highgloss #5. ( to drunk and tired ) You can order these gator pads online. I bought 1 pack of medium and fine. Each pack comes with 2 pads. And it got me through 3 kegs. You will also need the rubber backing plate. I will post a pic as soon as I get home as my phone isn't cooperating with this app.
