Most of the German factories. Bosie still might. I'll have to ask.
JPM I use 643 Paste -before
644 Paste-after
645 End-polish
and 655 600 Polishing paste.
On large surfaces I use an electric buffer. For small areas I use soft toilet paper. I'm very good friends with Webb and Ruth Phillips at Allied. They live close to me in PA.

Curry

NOT to open a can of worms here, but there is NO such thing as "soft" toilet paper. Toilet paper is made of wood!! (pulp, and yes, I know you know that)

3m makes a "micro-fiber" cloth that people use on high end camera lenses and eyeglasses. This is the only cloth I would ever use on a very high end finish. If you were to look at toilet paper under a microscope, you would cringe!

Just trying to help and prevent someone from getting those fine spider-web marks which toilet paper causes.

Mr S, when repairing poly, the toilet paper helps to do the rough rubbing of the first paste rouge application on large and small areas. For the final polishing compounds, an electic buffer works best. I would not use the TP for casual polishing or cleaning of a piano. Thank you for pointing out that I might have implied that.
The best cloth is the micro-fiber type for poly finishes.

Zaino? Did someone say Zaino? I use it on my Z06, but did not know I could use it on my polished ebony Kawai K25.

Cool.
