Hilzinger-Thum has been making buffing and grinding tools for over 120 years and is one of the few companies recommended by Menzerna for buffing wheels. Using the highest quality raw materials available, Hilzinger America in Ohio continues their tradition by producing customized buffing wheels for Spectrum that boast enhanced durability, cleaner finishes in less time/fewer steps, and buffing wheels that retain their firmness throughout their life.
Pair best with: Menzerna 523LBZ, Menzerna 439T, Menzerna 456G, Menzerna 113GZ, Menzerna 333, Menzerna P14F
Buff will need to be raked prior to initial use. Does not include a center reducer plate. Requires the use of a self-centering safety flange set or standard end flanges (ideally) in conjunction with a center reducer plate for proper mounting and safe operation. Industrial grade.
Hilzinger Max RPM:
10″ x 3″ = 2000 RPM
12″ x 5″ = 1700 RPM
Please note that while several prototype and production buffs were tested at 5k, 6k, and 8.5k RPM, Hilzinger-Thum/Hilzinger America will not warranty buffing wheels run at excessive speeds. Do so at your own risk. Because Hilzinger has pushed their production machinery to its limit (at our request) to produce these buffs, you may notice small gaps between the material and clinch rings on some individual buffs. Rest assured that this simply because the material has become, effectively, incompressible, and that is it still well-secured in the ring.

I’ve used many different brands of wheels in my years of polishing and I can u say without a doubt these wheels are top tier best wheels I’ve used yet no questions asked 10/10 recommend

I recommend these wheels due to the fact that they are balance better, thicker material, maintains rouge longer. The material seems to last longer but does depend on whats being polished. Someone cant use this on step treads and expect long life, thats stupidity. The finish when paired with menzerna polishing products will put more depth to your finish product. The price is fair when you consider longevity. Get what you pay for. I will recommend these to anyone. Thank you Spectrum for delivering a quality product!
These are some thick wheels. I was able to spin the wheel at 8K. held steady, didn’t feel like it was going to blow up. Very impressed with the life of the wheel!

I’ve ran just about every wheel there is on the market. And they’ve all had their slight vibrations or real bad vibrating. These wheels are so beautifully balanced and leave such a clean finish on your final cut pass. My hands also don’t seem to go as numb and tingly, as bad running these buffs. These will be the only things on my shelf from now on

Unreal durability, finishes clean almost need something a little stiffer sometimes

Not to worry Joe! We sent an original Matchless orange and lavender buff for Hilzinger to evaluate; we are expecting them to have their first run of a heavy cut mill treatment in hand in mid June and we have already ordered the first of these buffs.
