12 X 5" Bias Sisal Buffing Wheel, Red Treatment, 1-1/4" Center hole
12 INCH BIAS SISAL BUFF 5" CENTER Medium-Firm Red Treatment, 1-1/4" Centerhole - for use on 1-1/4 inch diameter shafts
This wheel is treated with our unique Red treatment. It is Medium Firm. This treated sisal holds buffing compound very well. The wheel is firm but not rock hard. It is a very popular seller! This wheel will last at least 3 times longer than a untreated wheel. These wheels are used for cut down operations on steel, stainless steel and aluminum. They work well as first step buffs when preparing work for the final high luster step. Use a liquid or bar type steel cut buffing compound like #BP-509 or BP-401 with these buffing wheels. Sisal buffs are designed to take the pressure needed to buff out abrasive belt lines and scratches. These buffs are the same as full disc sisal buffs except the buffs are formed from bias cut strips of sisal and a metal center clinch ring is used same as bias airway buffs. These buffing wheels are roughly 3/4" wide. You can stack as many on the buffing shaft as needed to build the desired buffing wheel face. Sisal buffing wheels should only be used when maximum pressure is needed to cut very hard metals.
This type of bias sisal buffing wheel can be made for you in many configurations. Presently we are only stocking this in a few sizes. Please contact us if you are interested in another size or construction.
WARNING MUST BE used with the proper size Steel End Flanges, Center plates alone will not support the buffing wheel on the shaft. It is very dangerous to try and use this wheel without the proper size steel end flanges.
