Layers of cloth are sewn together, making these wheels more rigid than those for curved surfaces. Loose layers of cloth conform to curves and contours. Long, soft cotton strings conform to irregular surfaces and hold on to burring compounds longer than other wheels. Specially shaped to buff the insides of metal pipes, cylinders, stampings, and tapered objects.
Holes in the hub allow air to flow through so the wheel stays cool and compound lasts longer. Also known as airway buffs. Pleats hold more buffing compound so you can work longer before having to reapply. The cotton is also cut at an angle to prevent fraying and extend wheel life. The layers of flannel are sewn together, making these wheels more rigid than those for curved surfaces. Also known as Canton flannel buffs.
Softer than flat-surface wheels, these conform to curves and contours. Use these rigid wheels to remove gouges and scratches from metal workpieces. The layers of sisal are sewn together for maximum rigidity and resistance to fraying. Made from alternating strips of cotton and sisal, these wheels remove less material, leave fewer scratches, and conform better to curves and contours than flat-surface wheels.
Also known as finger-style buffs. A uniform density helps distribute abrasive grains evenly throughout these felt wheels for a more consistent surface polish. The edge of the wheel is tapered for polishing joints, grooves, and crevices. These ventilated flanges let you use wheels with a center hub on bench grinders and buffers.
Shaped for use on inside cylinders or on irregular surfaces. A special fastener on the back of these flexible discs allows you to easily swap one disc for another. Use with a backup pad on grinders for bits and burs. Washable and reusable, these pads are good for buffing and polishing painted and clear-coat finishes. The wheel flares out as it spins for use on depressions and curved surfaces.
Remove buildup and fluff packed-down bonnets to extend their life. Polish small areas and hard-to-reach spots. Use in a drill or grinder for bits and burs. Remove scratches from your workpiece with these hard bobs. The silicon carbide abrasive cuts quickly with light pressure. Remove minor scratches, scuffs, cloudy surfaces, and hard water etching from glass or plastic. The shank on these spindles installs directly into grinder collets and drill chucks.
Mount to the straight shaft on your grinder or buffer. Use one of these spindles to mount buffing wheels to the tapered shaft on your grinder or buffer. Attach to grinder and buffer shafts to hold buffing wheels with shanks. Attach cutoff wheels, grinding wheels, and other abrasive wheels to hand-held drills and die grinders. Use these arbors to mount buffing wheels, grinding wheels and other abrasive discs to the tapered shaft on bench-top motors, grinders, and buffers.
Coat cotton, canvas, and felt buffing wheels with this cement, then apply abrasive grains. Contact Us Order. Log in. Create login. Choose a Category.I was wandering the craft store yesterday when I came across this abalone shell. What you see in the picture is actually the back side of the shell with the brown outer shell polished off. I think I'll make a Maori fish hook with it next. Safety first.
Make sure to wear eye protection and a quality dust mask. Grinding sea shell creates a lot of dust so protect those eyes and lungs. Use a scroll saw or coping saw to cut out a piece of shell. I have my saw on the fastest setting. Just make sure you have down ward pressure on the shell while it's cut to avoid it from jumping around. Use a grinding wheel to remove the brown outer part of the shell.
Then switch to a sanding attachment to even out the surface. You can use either attachment to fine tune your desired shape. You can find both these in any auto parts section. Scour the surface of the shell until you no longer see the scratch marks left behind from the sanding pad. This will get hot so keep a cup of water near by to cool off the shell.
You can buy buffing compound in what looks like a clay brick. How you use it is you chuck a buffing wheel into your drill press. Now you just buff what your making like normal. The red brick is more abrasive while the while brick is less.
Drill a small hole using gentle pressure. Use a paper clip to make a jump ring and polish it on the buffing wheel. What size or grit is the flap disc? I will be making a purchase and want to get the one used here.

Here is the link to what Im reffering to:. Chandu I Waxed The Badger. Well, it probably has chromium oxide in it Pay a little more and get some something not from China that is precisely graded on size. Also, this is buffing compound, that means in addition to chromium oxide, it has waxes and other carriers to help it stick to buffing wheels. You are much better off buying pure chromium oxide from someone that sells razor supplies.
If this is for wood working chisels, have at it. I'm sure others can make suggestions of the good stuff. Last edited: Nov 10, Chandu said:. EricSki said:. Alright, I guess I'll stay away from it then. I've used that sort of thing to strop kitchen knives.I have the WEP Propac 2 what suggestions do you guys have in regards to the compounds I should get that will fill in my stropping?
Those are pretty good I have only used the two whites and a green. If it were up to me? B The roo is especially nice! I think Eamon knows this that there can be many different compounds that are white, or any other color. I have HF1 and that are both white, way different grit size. Usually Black is the most coarse, then brown, white, green often called stainless steel polishingred, should be jewelers rouge, but there are many grades of thatblue general purpose polishing, not much abrasive at all.
Jewelers rouge typically is rated about 5 microns, but has a range of grits depending on the grade that you buy.
For what they charge, the HF stuff is probably all over the place. One other thing to add. Those compounds are made for power buffers, They are usually wax based… or something like that. They instruct you to hold them against a power buffer, usually at around RPM.
It is really hard to get a decent coat of that stuff on a WEPS paddle with leather or anything else that it not moving at high speed relative to the steel. I did this for bench strops, just to find out how it would work… it sucks!!! You get known quality materials that are designed for stropping knives. Save yourself all of the grief and experimentation and cost in dollars and time that I have gone through… just get the good stuff to begin with!
It is really hard to get a decent coat of that stuff on a WEPS paddle with leather or anything else. Skip these compounds, they will only cause you grief. Back aboutlong before all information was available on the internet, I discovered Simichrome metal polish and made bench strops out of whatever leather I could find and charged them with this stuff. It was miraculous in those days producing a mirror edge after a few swipes on an Arkansas stone.
I still have some of the strops I made and they still are OK for the quick and dirty fine edge. Back to Harbor Freight; nothing they sell is very precise including grading and consistency of their buffing grits. What you get is a range of grit in an unknown binder. If you really want to use buffing compounds, get on the internet and find some quality materials.
If you want to charge a strop with wax based buffing compound, you can shave some of the compound off the bar and make a slurry with neatsfoot oil or put the neatsfoot oil sparingly on the leather strop and rub the buffing compound bar across the surface before all of the oil has soaked in. You can find chromium oxide for charging razor strops that some of the straight razor fans use, it is about 0.

Marc Simon Participant.First photo shows installed assembly. Second shows sloppy fit without adapter. First push on shaft washer with 1" OD step. Followed by the wheel, then the centering plastic washer. Follow those parts up with your metal washer and securing nut. Tighten nut firmly. No further tightness is required. If you held the nut, the powered rotation of the motor should tighten it and not loosen it.
If you are working on the left side of a motor, the nut should be left hand or tightened counter clockwise. If you are working on the right side of a motor, the nut should be right hand or tightened by clockwise rotation. Always wear safety glasses and hand protection.
Choose your work site carefully. It is possible to lose grip on your part and have it propelled by the buffer at speed into people or property. Do not spin faster RPM. Do not use any parts, wheels or motors showing sines of fatigue or cracking. Do not use with grinding wheels or wire brushes. The buffing wheel, motor, nut and metal washer s are not included and must be provided by you.
