Recommended for: Finishing and light cutting. For typical cut polishing with 3″ center buffing wheels, we suggest our Self-Centering Safety Flange . To use buffing wheels with a 5″ center, you will need the XL Self-Centering Safety Flange.
Typical Application: For mounting and securing two 3” metal center wheels to portable grinders and polishers without the need for a shaft nut or a center reducer plate.
About: These safety flanges were designed as a quick change system when mounting metal center buffing wheels to portable power and air tools with a 5/8”-11 threaded arbor. They are self-centering meaning the inside 3” center section of each plate is raised to fit inside the clinch ring. This allows for tool-less installation, quicker mounts and dismounts, smooth and secure operation, and eliminates the need for a center reducer plate.
