Cont.

The Stella F cowles were a bit of a highlight for me - loved doing that reel and getting more done. Pity the reel was on sold.

Yes.
Depending on the gear makeup or surface coating or hardening process.
It may or may not get "bright"
It will polish well..but it will look like it's wet...instead of being a mirror finish.

I did a video of me polishing the gear of three reels with Steez, antares, mgxtreme2.
The all brass looks like a gold watch. The other two main gears look wet.
The pinions all glow!
