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!
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
- Cut out desired wheel size from template, or mount pre cut wheel onto the adapter.
- Slide adapter shaft fully into the tool, securely fasten, and get cleaning!
- Always sand or buff in the same direction, try to buff in the length of the part. Intersecting scratches do not look good.
- Remove as much grease, oil, and dirt as you can before using the wheels, so you’re not contaminating them.
- 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.
- 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 by hand.
- Always wear a dust mask or respirator and proper eye protection while buffing!
