Machine Guide

Here's a list of recommended buffing machines and handheld tools that pair up great with Pryme wheels.

Large Wheels:

The 6 and 8 inch cleaning & flap wheels are designed to be used on a buffing machine or bench grinder. For a buffing machine, you'll want at least a 1/2 HP motor that spins around 3000-3600 RPM. One with an extended shaft is best, so you have lots of clearance to buff your parts. If you'll be doing lots of buffing, opt for a 3/4 HP motor.

Machine Reccomendations:

1/2 HP Buffer

3/4 HP Buffer

2 Speed 3/4 HP Baldor Buffer (will last a lifetime)

    The wheels we sell can be used on a machine with a 1/2", 5/8", or 3/4" shaft.

    Mini Wheels:

    The smaller wheels (under 4" diameter) are sold with 2 different size shafts, 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch. The 1/4 inch is best used on a straight shaft die grinder. The wheels with the 1/8 inch shaft are for a Dremel or 1/8" rotary tool. Both size shafts can be used on a high speed drill with good results, but you'll achieve the best results with the tools listed below.

    Whenever you're doing any sort of grinding or sanding you'll want to use eye and respiratory protection. Trust us, you do not want to be breathing in metal particles! At the bare minimum, wear a dust mask and glasses.

    A great product for protecting yourself is this respirator Click Here

    Alternatively, this is also a great respirator to pair up with safety glasses Click Here

    If you're doing lots of buffing, it's recommended to get some sort of ventilation like this exhaust fan that we use Click Here
