Looking good. What did you use to clean/polish the aluminum?

Nice. I usually use mother's mag wheel polish for my final rub down on aluminum and brass.

Very nice! Doesn't it feel great to see the result of a project that you worked for a long time? To me, that feeling makes any frustration worth it.

I'd have to say the polishing looked pretty good. That lamp looked like it was brand new when I saw it in person. I'm not used to seeing such clean lamps before! My lamps are in good shape, but they have been 'worked in the mines' and have a bit of grime on them.
