  • Novus #2

    Jody Collier from "Welding Tips and Tricks.com" recommended using a plastic abrasive called Novus #2 to clean the cover plates on welding hoods. This weekend I used it to clean the plastic covers on my pedestal grinder. It worked like a charm. Below are before and after pictures.

      I bought it on eBay.
      I bought the set shown below which also contained the #1 & #3 as well for almost the same money.

      Just Google "Novus#2"

          I have always used Meguiar's Plexi polish or the military "Type L" liquid plastic polish....... for both aircraft plexiglass windows and general purpose plastic polihing

          the Meguiar"s Plexi polish is now called PlastX™ Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish
          and should be readily available at the FBO of your local small airport

            Good info. Thanks. Can't remember how many bottles of the military stuff I used- but that was 40+ years ago. And really haven't thought much about it since until I saw Don's post. I've just been replacing the cover plate in my hood. Could clean 'em up and see better between replacements.
