source for cloth buffing wheels
« on: January 02, 2019, 10:04:23 AM »

I'm replacing the worn out cloth buffing/polishing wheel on my Highland Parks B-10 and having some difficulty locating a buff wheel for a 3/4" shaft. Tried Kingsley and Covington.  Any ideas ?

Not familiar with your type equipment, but could shaft adapters work?  Zoro, FDJ, Diamond Pacific . They make right and left hand threaded units.

Cool ...thanks for that web site.

Shaft adaptors would not work due to lack of space in the spray hood.

Oddly my memory kicked in and I remembered a three wheel unit a friend gave me that sits under my 18" saw un-used (yeah, right in front of me) that had a 2" wide x 8" diameter felt wheel mounted on a 3/4" shaft. Installed it on my Highland Park unit and I am a felt wheel convert !  Love its even surface. Provides for a great polish.

Thanks all !
