The 16-ply canton-weave cotton material has soft nap on one side, and coarse weave on the other side for proper rigidity.

12"-diameter wheel fits our older Buffing Arbor System, and other arbors with 3/4"-diameter shaft.

14"-diameter wheel fits 1"-diameter arbor shafts, including our Guitar Buffing Arbor.

Important: Install two or more wheels per side when setting up a buffing arbor, and don't mix different Menzerna Compounds on the same wheels.

Stew mac's buffing wheels.

If you are going to make it easy on yourself and get reliable, quality polishing results then you need to get the right tools.For me the right tools meant a buffing arbor, two 13" buffing wheels and some fine Menzerna buffing compound. Now I am able to get reliable,professional looking finishes for my ukulele builds. I would recommend starting up the buffing wheels for the first time out in the open air against a piece of 2x4 lumber as the fluff that comes off of a new wheel makes it look like a heavy snow storm. All in all I couldn't be happier with my new buffing wheels.

great buffers

i love these. they last and last and last. try to avoid buffer metal hardware and frets with these because it will turn your wheel black. i bought a separate wheel for doing just that. if you do get these dirty, no problem just throw them in the washing machine and they come out clean. no need to dry them just put them back on the buffing machine and let the spinning dry them. just watch out for the flying water! lol

What a shine

I have several of these buffing wheels. I usually double them up to give more buffing area. They enable you to get that showroom shine. They are well constructed and last a long time.

Buffing Wheels

These buffing wheels will produce a mirror finish especially with the Menzerna compounds. I rigged a "Rube Goldberg" buffer and these buffing wheels are First Class!
