Osborn – Non-Woven Abrasive Airway Wheel (Very Fine)
C$37.25 – C$41.25
For blending and satin finishing on flat or contoured metal parts.
Very fine (~320 grit) aluminum oxide non-woven material. Four-ply airway buff is less aggressive than full disc wheels. Can be used to produce decorative finishes. Recommended for cleaning up welds and in areas where conventional sanders cannot reach (e.g., drive rim water channels) prior to polishing. Wider buffs such as this may rub against the body of the polisher and may need spacers/arbor extenders to fit more easily on short-arbor machines (e.g., Makita).
Please note: Matchless was recently purchased by Osborn (Jackson Lea). Osborn has not yet been able to fully commission Matchless’ original buff production machinery; as a result, Osborn has continued supplying airways produced with Matchless’ cloth but manufactured on their own buffing wheel production equipment. As a result, buff appearance may vary from those pictured – this is, however, a temporary solution as they work to start up Matchless’ equipment and bring all their equipment to the same specifications.
Non-Woven Airway buffs are designed for light to medium duty applications where coated abrasives are too aggressive or not applicable. The pleated design provides a more uniform finish than full disc wheels and help prevent rippling in your finish. Use to produce decorative finishes, remove parting lines, for light deburring, breaking edges, sealer sanding, and rust removal.
