- How To Use
Take your cleaning anywhere a drill can go with the Pryme drill cleaning wheel kit. Works with any drill or tool that has a drill chuck. Recommended to be used with a high speed drill of 2500 RPM or higher.

- Install wheel onto adapter shaft.
- Slide adapter shaft at least 3/4" into drill, securely fasten, and get cleaning!
- Use rough wheels to remove scratches, pits, or casting marks.
- The fine wheels wear quickly, so only use when giving your part a finishing shine.
- Remove as much grease, oil, and dirt as you can before using the wheels, so you’re not contaminating them.
- The wheels work best at high RPM, so turn your drill to the speed setting.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
This product is designed to be used on a high speed drill with a minimum of 2500 RPM, or could be used on a die grinder as well.

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! 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
Use these filters with the previously mentioned respirators Click Here
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
I was pretty impressed with the results of these cleaning wheels. The only thing though, is I wish they were a little more durable.
Thanks for your honest review Anthony! Great work with the products. Unfortunately, as the wheels get more abrasive and stiff, the more rough the finish will be. These wheels are made as strong as possible, while still achieving a good smooth finish.
I have been restoring a 2003 CR250 with my son. These wheels have been awesome to help bring this bike back to life and give it some pop. I will definitely be using them again.
Great to see the wheels working well for you! Thanks for sharing your review David!
I've been making some b brass parts out of 3/16"stock and have struggled to speed up the polishing process. I used the disks in my drill press and drill and got great results.
That's great, happy to hear they've made a difference for you! Thanks for sharing your review Willis.
Thanks for sharing your experience with the products Sean! Happy to see the wheels made a difference for you.
