Buffing wheels designed and constructed for cut-down operations on metal.

To achieve a beautiful mirror finish, metal (like any material) needs to be prepared by cutting down the surface to remove highs and lows. Deep scratches diffuse light and reduce your clarity; cut them out with coarse cutting compounds and firm buffing wheels that enhance the cut-down effect! Spectrum recommends combining these buffs with Menzerna’s 439T, 456G, or 113GZ Heavy Cut compounds.

Please note that Osborn’s new wide-teeth clinch rings do NOT hold up at 6k RPM on 10″ buffing wheels – no buffing wheel is rated for these speeds. Older style clinch rings with more, narrower teeth appear to be a little stronger and while we occasionally receive these depending on the machine they are produced on, we cannot request them exclusively. We run 12″ x 5″ buffs almost exclusively and have not had a single blow-out in our shop with these buffs at 6k. Please note that clearance items are final sale.
