Just ordered some on Ebay.  Here's the directions and prices.  Imagine you substitute vinegar for the water. 
Never even heard of it before this link, but it's worth a try.

Mix a few tablespoons of Holy Cow Polish with a small amount of water
to make a thin pancake like paste, keep
this mixture in an airtight container that has NO metal parts or
metal lid (metal will oxidize and cause
contaminates) I use a spray bottle for my shop. This mixture is
then applied to a dampened leather pad,
cotton buff, tin-lead, lead, tin or zinc lap, polypads, plastic
lap, resin pad, old ultra laps, ceramic lap,
phenolic lap, felt wheel or lap, wood spool polisher, computer CDs
or whatever you are using to polish
with now, with a small brush that has no metal parts and then rub
it in with your clean fingers. You can
replace different grit laps depending on the type stone your
working with. Keep a container of water
handy to cool and clean the stone as the more you polish the
better the shine gets and when the shine
doesn't get any better you've finished.
my price for Holy Cow polish is $13.00 per ounce
for one to six ounces plus shipping of $3.00 (EXAMPLE: Most orders for
small amounts usually are for two ounces $26.00 plus shipping $3.00 total
$29.00)...larger bulk orders of one half pound ($93.00), one pound ($170.00)
and five pounds ($685.00) plus shipping and insurance... if you would like
to have your HCP insured please add $1.75 for the first $50.00, $2.75 for up to
$100.00 and $1.00 more per $100.00 value after that...I accept PayPal, MO or
checks but NO C.O.D.'s...if you wish to pay by credit card I take credit cards
by PayPal only and before you pay please email me for payment instructions and an
send payment to:

I had the pleasure of meeting Bill Myers last month.  He was the developer of "Myers Rapid Polish".  He sold the polish business to Val Carver at MLS but still cuts and sells cabs.  He polishes everything with his polish in a GyRoc 10 lb. vibe tumbler.  Everything had a mirror finish including the wonderstone on his table.  The now known as Rapid Polish #61 from MLS is considerably less expensive and is a .3 micron aluminum oxide.

I did a quick search for the Rapid Polish #61 .. Found that Stone Age carries it.

Not clear yet if it is just for tumblers or if it can be used on various polishing pads like leather ?

Thanks John..

Yes, definitely works on buffs.  They market a 3 micron aluminum oxide for rotary tumblers called TXP.  The Rapid Polish is .3 so same micron as Linde A.  I think MLS price s $14.50 per lb.  Works great on soft stones and hard stones on buffing wheels and vibe tumblers.  MLS is Minnesota Lapidary Supply in case anyone doesn't know.
