Lastly, whenever you're doing any sort of grinding or sanding you'll want to use eye and respiratory protection. Trust me, you do not want to be breathing in metal particles!

If you're doing lots of buffing, I'd recommend getting some sort of ventilation like this exhaust fan that I use Click Here
And of course, always a good idea to wear gloves Click Here
- Make sure you have a 1/4" size collet for your die grinder.
- Slide the shaft of the wheel into tool and tighten lock nut.
- Always 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.
- To achieve a consistent brushed look on larger parts, follow up with a fine cleaning wheel either by hand or on a machine.
- Always wear a respirator and eye protection when using the wheels!
