My shower stall has grown to a sorry state, with limescale/scum deposits that won't go away by chemical means (my attempts progressed to 25% HCl before I gave up). So what I want to try now is a mechanical removal with glass polish compound.
Anywhere I look, these compounds are used with polishing pads or sponges mounted on round sanders, or there are adapters for electric screwdrivers. I don't have an electric screwdriver, and I don't have a round sander, but I have a "multifunction" sander with a delta-shaped tip and a horizontal addition below the delta, a bit like a small clothesiron.
The sander plate has the same velcro hooks as the round sander plates, so the polishing pad or sponge would stick to it mechanically. Also, the pad or sponge would be thick enough that any area not covered by the pad would not come in contact with the glass. I could also put some masking tape on top to avoid polishing paste coming into the hooks.
The sander has holes through which wood dust is sucked in, that would be covered by the pad, but I think that the round sanders have those too, so that shouldn't be a problem.
Given that the attachment is physically possible, the question remains, should I do it? Are there risks I haven't thought of, either to the sander or to the shower stall?
