Zephyr Sales Company was started over 30 years ago with the idea of providing the very best metal polish and metal finishing products to the street rod industry; early on, they saw that the heavy truck industry was growing at a phenomenal rate and there was a growing need for a high quality metal polish. Zephyr offers a true “one stop” product resource for their customers to purchase all of their buffing needs from one source and one manufacturer. All Zephyr products are proudly American made.
Recommended for: any 10″ x 3″ Zephyr buffing wheel (new, old, or centerless).
Typical Application: For mounting and securing a single 3” metal center wheel to portable grinders and polishers without the need for a shaft nut or a center reducer plate.
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 the bottom 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.
Do not over-tighten. May overheat and crack if used at excessive buffing speeds (e.g., 6k RPM).
