Started polishing MC hubs n parts back in the 60s. Lotsa ways to do it. I try to do it as time effective as possible and found it's much easier to keep a nicely polished surface brite with a minimal amount of work, however if you let it go, yes it will degrade. For round items use anything that will spin it. Mandrel from a proper fitting shaft, IE: axle, or in the case of a Hobbit, for instance, a tranny shaft mounted in a drill press or lathe. I don't throw away broken cranks cause they provide a mounting for parts that fit. I have a collection of shafts that can be used for mandrels. And for other parts lots of sanding after dremeling away casting imperfections, etc. Then my Baldor buffing motors, with plenty of different wheels and compounds. One compound to one wheel so there's no cross contamination. It just depends on how nice you want the final outcome to be. For nooks n crannies, easily made custom mandrels for the dremel is mandatory. About 80 hrs to mirror polish an entire Hobbit motor. Picture doesn't do it justice!
