Oh yes, having the map in bump and color(diffuse) channel is very important.
Did you not see this downloadable scene w/ brushed metal already made?

No i just downloaded the scratch map thingy.

i wanted to work out how to do it myself as there is lots of variation in each pot...different polishing techniques etc.

cant wait to do the whole range they are beautiful!

getting there: with hdri and 3 emitters ( although you can see the texture seam, I have now rotated model)

just installed the new twilight, retextured using the same method...and it works perfect...absolutely no problems. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
Haha...

The older version would indeed fail with some UV's unless you triangulated the mesh first! I had the same issue with it before.
:D

download the metals library from here. They are meant for use with Easy 08-10.
For Easy 1-7 use these metals.
(In KT I combined them all into one library, renamed them appropriately, then resaved the library as one simple go-to place.)

use the same technique you are doing to apply the scratchmap so that you have correct UV mapping for your object, except use the scratch map that is in that material library (so you have correct scale).
Then apply that library material... Brushed Stainless Steel or something.

You may have to tweak the material using Kerkythea in order to get exactly what you want.

update:

5 emitters and hdri....really difficult getting the streaky reflections right!

PP: vignette, levels, text, add noise
