Don't know whether this works but when I wanted to have a really high shine on my leather shoes I used to polish them with discarded nylon stockings. Might be that this also works with a wax finish on already finely sanded wood.

Cheers, M.

I assume you're after it for rubbing down between finishing coats.

You can use 3M Scotchbrite pads or your generic scouring pads from supermarkets.
Yes, it is for between finishing coasts, one quick question, I never used steel wool, are scouring pads same grit (fine) as steel wool 0000?

Not quite but close. They will both give a similar result.

Practice on a piece of scrap first. Those pads are only a few cents each.

It depends what you're finishing, I've just recently started cold casting with bronze and you have to cut back through the resin with steel wool. I tried scotch bright and wet and dry and they wasn't a patch on steel wool.

Keep trying and report back if you find anything.

I have has pretty good luck with the grey scotch bright pads. Most auto body supply shops have them. Very fine finish. Good luck.

If it is tru oil you are scuffing up, I have heard that 1200 wet/dry is very close. It was told to me by a much much better builder than myself but I liked the way it worked also.
Be well buddy,
