Self-centering safety flange eliminates the need for center reducer plates.

Completely assembled end mount or "T" style rake set for one handed use with portable power and air tools.

Designed as an anti-glazing and facing device for cloth buffing wheels. Handle is flared at the base to help prevent loss of grip when raking. Steel rake head is easily replaceable when worn.

Keep your hands safe and extend your buff's reach with a safety flange extension!

These lightweight aluminum threaded adapters are a perfect solution for those needing additional threads on portable power tools or equipment equipped with a 5/8” arbor. Provides a full 1-1/2” of male threads for exceptional versatility. Made from extra high grade 7075 aluminum for added strength and reliability. Hexagon base for easy installation and removal. Recommended for use with our Quickcenter safety flange sets.

Spectrum recommends mounting these buffs on variable speed, rotary polishers such as the Makita 9237C or DEWALT DWP849X or on an appropriate stationary buffer.

Precautions: Do not breathe dust during use. Wear appropriate safety clothing and respiratory protection. Generated dust exposure can irritate eyes and skin. Buffs will need to be raked prior to initial use. Buffs do not include center reducer plates and require the use of a self-centering safety flange set or standard end flanges in conjunction with a center reducer plate for proper mounting and safe operation.

    Been using the starter kits to restore are off highway log trucks that only do 4 km of pavement a day. The other 400+ km we do in a day are running through calcium and mud off the highway. One starter kit does a truck (trucks are done every 6 months) that’s 6 drive rims, 2 steers, diamond plate bull boards, full tanks, and steps. Really impressed with the quality of the wheels and compounds go farther than the old supplies I used to get.

      Thanks so much for your review David, and glad things have been working well for you!

      It’s funny – when we first brought in the buffs we found they lasted much longer than what we used to source; now since moving to the Menzerna compounds we find the situation has reversed and they go further than the buffs! On well-prepared (sanded) trucks we often get 6-8 trucks out of a single bar of 439T.

      Anyways, all the best and thanks again for your business. Keep on shining!
