Default Re: Refurbishing a veneered radio case

I used Astonish on a black anodised aluminium housing of a hifi component. First time, 'ok' but I thought it needed a second application. Did so and it did the job, spotless. Problem was, the colour morphed from black to dark ink blue! That was about nine months ago. Now, it has returned to black! That's anodising for you and lucky me. But the moral to the tale is, use Astonish with care. It is VERY effective. Don't leave it on too long and flush it off with LOTS of H2O. It's particularly good on parts that you can dunk in a bowl full of water to remove it and the detritus after application. I personally have no experience of applying it to wooden items but swear by it when used as I have described.
A digital radio is the latest thing, but a vintage wireless is forever..
