Regardless of wheel pattern or size the method is the same: With the wheel spinning, lightly touch the wheel to the buffing bar for one second, then clean or polish the workpiece. Do not overload the wheel with buffing compound, as little and often is best. There are different types of buffing bar, each is best suited to a specific material or polishing stage. bolpol™ Buffing bars are graded with two rating numbers from 1 to 10, example rating 8/4 divided by a / . The number 8 refers to the abrasiveness ( the roughness) of the bar and the number 4 is the level of shine it will give. The first number is called "The Cut" - the higher this number is the rougher the abrasive and the more stock (material) will be removed from the workpiece. The second number is "The Colour" or level of sheen / shine and refers to how much shine the compound will give - the higher this number the more highly polished the finish. Each bar has a different grade or types of abrasive grit best suited to a material or polishing stage. bolpol™ Buffing bars are available from our Ebay shop. Example 9/0 - Emery Grey - a very rough buffing bar that is highly abrasive and produces a semi bright / satin ( also called a lined finish ). 1/9 - Jewellers Rouge - an ultra fine buffing bar that has the least stock removal and produces a fully bright / high gloss or mirror bright finish. 5/8 - Blue - a medium cut bar which produces a high level of gloss finish. Below is a guide to the most common uses for each bar. 1st Stage Polishing Compounds ( Cleaning, rust and mark removal ) Emery Grey ( Ferrous metals like Iron & Steel ) rating 9/0 Grey ( Ferrous metals like Iron & Steel ) rating 8/4 Brown ( Non Ferrous metals like Brass, Copper and Aluminium ) rating 7/7 2nd & Final Stage Polishing Compounds ( Cleaning and Polishing ) Green (Steel and Stainless Steel) rating 7/8 Green - Medical Grade (Stainless Steel) rating 7/8 Pink (Chrome) rating 4/8 White - aka White Rouge (Aluminium & Chrome) rating 3/9 Yellow (Resins & hard Plastics) rating 4/7 Cream (hardwoods, plastics and composite materials) rating 5/9 Red (Jewellers Rouge) (Gold & Silver) rating 1/9 Blue - aka Smurf Poo (Copper, Brass & Bronze) rating 5/8 Multi Purpose Bars These two bars although developed for specific materials can be regarded as being multi purpose and will generally clean and polish most materials, except soft plastic. Brown ( Non Ferrous metals like Brass, Copper and Aluminium ) rating 7/7 Blue - aka Smurf Poo (Copper, Brass & Bronze) rating 5/8 Wheel Patterns bolpol™ Buffing wheels are available from our Ebay shop in a choice of wheel patterns, Sisal, Stitched Cotton, Loose Leaf Sisal Buffing Wheels are a modern version of a wire brush used for 1st stage metal polishing and heavy duty cleaning of hard metals like iron, steel and non-ferrous metals. They are used to remove tooling, casting and grinding marks and also rust removal etc. The most stock removal is best achieved with a coarse grade of buffing compound liek bolpol™ Grey or Brown buffing compound, while less abrasive compounds will give less stock removal in comparison Stitched cotton wheels are a firm general purpose pattern ideal for 1st and 2nd stage polishing of metals and hard plastics. This pattern wheel allows the polishing action to be concentrated on precise areas for the removal of imperfections, where necessary. Changing the type of buffing compound increases or decreases the cutting action, allowing them to be tailored to a specific use and material. Loose leaf pattern wheels are made from high grade Calico Cotton and is fitted with a central leather washer for secure attachment to a tapered nose, (except for the 50mm wheels which do not have a washer). During use the material of this loose leaf pattern wheel flares out to cover a larger surface area and is used to produce a high gloss or mirror bright finish. The pattern has a very low cut and is suitable for use on soft and precious metals, like Gold and Silver and plated surfaces, but equally suitable for use on Brass, Pewter, Copper, Chrome, Stainless steel, plastics and wood. This flexible wheel is not highly abrasive and is particularly suited to cleaning and polishing curved, irregular shape, difficult or tight areas, such as pipes, mouldings, tanks and is widely used by woodturners and woodcarvers for polishing items like bowls. Wheel Diameters available bolpol™ buffing wheels are available from our Ebay shop in a choice of diameter sizes from 50, 75, 100, 150 up to 200mm ( 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 inch). Each wheel is also available in a choice of width. The 50mm, 75mm and 100mm diameters are commonly used with corded or cordless drills, 100mm to 200mm with converted Bench grinders and polishing machines. This sale is for one wheel in the size listed. Width bolpol™ Stitched buffing wheels are traditionally sold by the width called a “Section” one section generally measures approximately 13mm ( 0.5 inch) wide, its approximate because it can vary slightly depending on the thickness of material used to make the wheel and also the binding pattern. As an approximate guide to width 1 section = 13mm (0.5 inch) wide, 2 section = 25mm (1 inch) wide, 3 = 40mm (1.5 inch) wide, 4 section wheel = 50mm (2 inch) wide. Wheel Fitting The wheel is fitted by screwing it by hand onto a tapered nose (also called a Pigtail). When in use the wheel further tightens up onto the tapered nose. A Buffing wheel has a small hole at its centre, the hole is surrounded with leather washer to ensure a firm fit and prolonging the life of the wheel. (NB: the 50mm diameter wheels do not have this leather washer due to their small diameter). We have listed in our Ebay shop tapered noses to convert 6 and 8 inch bench grinders into polishing machines and also Pigtails to mount in a corded or cordless drill.
