Attach to a rotary power tool and add buffing paste or compound to buff a workpiece. These buffing wheels are for use with rotary tools such as a buffer or a grinder. Often, buffing wheels and compounds are used in three steps: initial scratch removal (also called cutting), intermediate polishing, and final polishing (also called coloring).
Light Scratch Removal & Buffing
The multiple layers of cotton material on these buffs are sewn together in concentric circles, which provides a firm structure necessary for light scratch removal as well as buffing.
Coarse Scratch Removal & Buffing
Made of sisal, a coarse cotton fiber, and sewn into a durable spiral, these buffing wheels are ideal for coarse scratch removal, also called cutting, and buffing. They are most commonly used on harder metals such as steel and cast iron.
Intermediate Buffing & Polishing
Sewn into a tight spiral and made of cotton, these buffing wheels are firm and durable, making them best for intermediate buffing and polishing of flat surfaces.
Intermediate Buffing & Polishing for Contoured Surfaces
The cotton layers on these wheels are attached at the center, rather than sewn in a spiral or cushion pattern, which keeps them flexible for intermediate buffing of contours and rounded surfaces.
Long-Life Intermediate Buffing & Polishing
The pleats on these wheels hold buffing compound while polishing, reducing, or reapplying. These buffing wheels last longer than standard buffing wheels for intermediate buffing and polishing.
A soft flexible design makes these buffing wheels ideal for final polishing and finishing. The flannel material is very soft for a fine finish.
