8” Buffing Wheel, 4” Bowl Buff, and 8” Long Buffing Adapter

In the handout for my “Great Polyurethane Finishes Demo” (http://carlford.info/blog/2013/01/great-polyurethane-finishes-demo/) I talk about getting a “8” Buffing Wheel, 4” Bowl Buff, and 8” Long Buffing Adapter” from Don Pencil.

Don Pencil is no longer in business. Thus I now suggest you get the following from Packard Woodworks (www.packardwoodworks.com)


– 1-1/4″ x 8 Lathe Buffing Extender #120952
– 8″ Wax Beall Replacement Wheel #123940W
– 4″ Wax Beall Bowl Buff #123934W

Note: I attach the Buffing Wheels to Long Buffing Adapter with a local hardware store 3/8” bolt and fender washers.

I don’t use any wax on my buffing wheels! Thus I just get the Beall wheel. NOT the complete system! See “Great Polyurethane Finishes Demo” (http://carlford.info/blog/2013/01/great-polyurethane-finishes-demo/) for more info.


Or you can get the 8″ Wheel from Mcmaster-Carr (www.mcmaster.com). Two of “Buffing Wheel for Curved Surfaces, 8″ Diameter x 1/2″ Thick, 1/2″ Arbor Hole” #4820A12.
