I have a giant pile of scratched up cds to clean.  I have a 3500 RPM
grinder with a felt "cutting" and a cotton polishing wheel. I have
white cutting compound and blue polishing compound.  The white stuff
and the felt wheel take out bad scratches and leave smaller ones.  The
blue stuff and the cotton make smaller scratches and a greasy sort of
film.  I want completely shiny cds. Record Stores do it with similar
equipment.  What's their secret?

I don't want to pay somebody else to do this since I have about 50 of
them here.  I want to know how to make my equipment work correctly.

yes.  All I find are people talking about the Disk Doctor (big swirl
issue) or toothpaste (not shiny).  I really want to know how stores
with the buffer's do it.
