buffer / flap wheel

Recommended Posts

I built this buffer / flap wheel . I have found single ply cardboard makes an excellent buffing wheel , I have used 30" dia at 1750 , it allows lots of pressure before deflecting . The flap wheel is a 14" x 6" . I ran the belts up the inside of the box tube pedestal as a belt guard . it has a 2 hp 3 ph motor .

How long it lasts depends on how wide it is and how much buffing around sharp edges, that said surprisingly long, to make the buffs lay them out with compass and cut with shears punch hole with sharpened tube , true up on buffer with angle grinder. As far as making flap wheels no can do , bought at flea market
