Tried polishing Panda linear stems in:
- Outemu Sky (opaque turquoise) housing.
- Outemu housing (clear top and bottom).
After polishing, both felt scratchy which suggests material affects quality of polish. Then I put one of the polished stems and put it into BSUN housing with clear top and opaque bottom. This combo was very smooth. So I think POM stems are more easily polished than non-POM. Makes sense since POM is ‘self-lubracating’, shedding plastic like a nudist would shed pieces of clothing.
Oh, I thought about polishing Panda stem + Halo housing, a combo each Holy Panda fan has a stash of, but gave up because there was some kind of interference near the bottom. It felt like tip of the left linear stem leg touching one of the leaves. Oh well.
