Cleaning Wheel Instructions
Wheels for buffer machine
- Secure wheel to buffer shaft with a flange on either side. On 5/8 and 3/4 inch buffer shafts you may have to spin the wheel to help it onto the shaft.
- Tighten down the nut until the wheel is secure on the shaft and doesn’t spin (use a spacer if your nut bottoms out on the threads).
Wheels for die grinder/Dremel
- Make sure you have the correct size collet for your tool (either 1/4" or 1/8")
- Slide the shaft of the wheel into tool and snug up lock nut, no need to really crank on it
- Try to sand or buff in the same direction, try to buff in the length of the part. Intersecting scratches do not look good.
- Use light pressure with the wheel or you'll wear it out prematurely. If you need to apply heavy pressure, you’ll need to go to a more aggressive wheel.
- Buffing against the direction the wheel is spinning will cut quicker, buffing with the spinning of the wheel will give a smoother finish.
- In order to make the wheels last as long as possible, stay away from sharp edges. The direction of the wheel should be spinning away from an edge and not towards it. Adjust the orientation of the part accordingly.
- You can stack wheels on the buffer to achieve a more consistent finish, and to prolong the life of the wheels.
- To achieve a consistent brushed look on larger parts, take the wheel off the buffer and finish it by hand, going in the same direction you were buffing in.
- Always wear a respirator and eye protection when using the wheels!
