Do any others here use these for polishing silver?

I use them for pre polishing to polish. 80, 120, 220, 400, 600 grits.

Here is a good link with these and tells about different accessories for using a dremel tool for polishing.  There are some rubber silicone ones that do not require any compound or rouge but I have not tried those.

Indeed I have Terry, and they work great !

They don't seem to last a long time, but for the price and the amount of polishing accomplished, they are worth it.  When they started to wear a little bit, the bristles tend to sort of flatten out and not work quite as well. I would then start running the dremel in the opposite direction, or flip them on the little shaft. 

Also would stack 3 or 4 at a time rather than just one.

Thank you for the link too  yes
