What Does It Do?

  • Blends in scratches and scrapes
  • Sands away casting texture and markings
  • Also great for paint preparation
  • Best for aluminum, but can be used on steel, stainless steel, magnesium, and brass with great results too

How Does It Work?

When mounted on a bench grinder or buffing machine, this wheel effectively sands away metal. Whether you're looking to remove scratches or the texture on a cast part, this is the wheel that will get the job done. This wheel has fiber pad in between flaps of sandpaper for smooth and effective action. 

Offered in 80 grit, 180 grit, and 320 grit. 

  • Use 80 grit for blending in deep scratches and removal of casting texture on steel and stainless steel.
  • Use 180 grit for blending in deep scratches and removal of casting texture on aluminum and soft metals. Works well for light scratches on steels.
  • Use 320 grit as a finishing wheel.

These wheels are designed to be used on a buffing machine or bench grinder. They can be used on a machine with a 1/2", 5/8", or 3/4" shaft. For a buffing machine, you'll want at least a 1/2 HP motor that spins at 3000 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 Recomendations:

1/2 HP Buffer

3/4 HP Buffer

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

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

Installation

  • Secure wheel to buffer shaft with the sandpaper facing the direction the wheel will be spinning. 
  • 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).

Buffing

  • Remove as much grease, oil, and dirt as you can before using the wheels, so you’re not contaminating them.
  • Sand or buff in the same direction if you’re going for a brushed look. Intersecting scratches do not look good.
  • Try to buff evenly across the part so you don't end up with dips or low spots.
  • Use light pressure with the wheel or you'll wear it out prematurely. If you need to apply heavy pressure, you should go to a more aggressive wheel. Refer to buffing chart below.
  • Applying a lubricant such as WD40 or Maxima MPPL to the part during sanding will help acheive 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. 
  • The sweet spot to buff on the wheel is between 4 and 5 o’clock. Look at your buffing machine from the left side, and picture where 4 and 5 o’clock are on the wheels. That is where you will want the part to touch the wheel when buffing.
  • Refer to the buffing chart below for the proper wheels to use with each metal type, as well as the steps to achieve the desired finish.
  • If you have problems achieving a good finish, refer to the troubleshooting guide below.
  • Always wear a dust mask or respirator and eye protection while buffing!

After Buffing:

  • A clear ceramic coating will protect your part after buffing.
  • Steel and magnesium parts must be protected with a coating, bare steel will rust quickly and magnesium corrodes in a matter of hours. Stainless steel and aluminum can be left bare without corrosion issues, as long as you keep the parts clean and out of the weather during storage.
  • To achieve a consistent brushed look on larger parts, finish it by hand with a hand pad, going in the same direction you were buffing in.
