English Custom Polishing is a small web portal dedicated to the fine art of plastic and metal polishing. Polishing is a trade that has been with us for quite some time. I’m Tom, and I’ve earned my retirement running a polishing company in New England. My son James took over the business, and he does most of the work nowadays.

One of the projects that I will definitely be covering is the aforementioned racing drone polishing. I’ve never heard anyone polishing these gadgets. Apparently there was an accident, and the owners’ expensive selfie drone got stuck in the mud. He cleaned it himself as much as they could, but they needed our help to get into all the nooks and crannies.
Polishing metals and plastic takes a lot of skill, depending of course what it is that gets polished. Over the years I’ve worked with all kinds of products and tools, so I’ve got a lot of experience that I’d like to share with the world. Recently I’ve discovered that there’s a large number of YouTube channels that features polishing and pressure washing of all kinds of materials. I really enjoy watching those, and I’d like to see my son expand the business someday to offering similar services. The three type of services that we do offer are:
