Plug these corded buffers and polishers into an outlet or generator for consistent power output for polishing and finishing tasks. Buffers and polishers use waxing and buffing compounds of various grits in combination with buffing wheels and other attachments to improve the surface finish of materials such as plastic, glass, stone, and metal. They are commonly used on vehicles, boats, and granite or marble countertops. Corded tools typically provide more power than comparable cordless tools and are a good choice for frequent or long-use applications. Corded polishers are available for a variety of tasks, finish qualities, and surface shapes and orientations.
The buffing pad on these right-angle corded buffers and polishers have an arbor that is oriented 90° to the tool drive train, making them well suited for use on marble and granite countertops, automobile roofs and hoods, and other horizontal surfaces.
With speeds ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 rpm, these corded buffers are ideal for detailing automotive surfaces. They are also suitable for tasks such as removing weld lines and smoothing paint.
For Wet Polishing
These polishers have an integrated water-feed mechanism for wet polishing granite, marble, and other types of stone or rock. A built-in GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) improves safety when working with water. These tools typically have smaller-diameter pads than standard polishers, making them well suited for more precise applications.
For Pipe Surfaces
Handheld pipe surface polishers use a rotating sanding belt to grind and remove weld marks from steel pipes and railings. They are also used to remove blemishes, scratches, and other surface imperfections for a mirror-like finish. The tool's Y-shaped face allows the buffing or sanding belt to apply equal pressure around a segment of the pipe, helping to ensure an even finish.
For Swirl-Free Results
Also known as a random-orbital polisher, these swirl-free corded buffers and polishers use rotating and orbiting motions to eliminate light scratches and swirls on the surface of a workpiece and leave a smooth finish. They accept interchangeable soft cloth or foam pads.
