Foam Polishing Pads

About This Item

High gloss finishes with your hand drill!
Shaped pads are great for guitar body contours. No swirl marks!

Your finishes can have a professional look when you use these fiber-free foam buffing pads. They're perfect for applying polishing compounds with your power buffer or variable-speed hand drill.

Foam polishing pads are perfect for applying polishing compounds, like our ColorTone Polishing Compounds. The gentle polishing action helps avoid swirl marks, fine scratches and burn-through, leaving a beautiful mirror-gloss surface.

For the small shop or casual builder, this is a great way to get factory-quality finishes without tedious hand polishing or expensive buffing equipment. Larger well-equipped shops find foam pads handy for getting into tight areas for fast spot refinishing, too. Each pad has a 1/4" arbor—you can use it in a drill press or variable-speed hand drill.

"Hourglass and cone-shaped pads are great for getting into guitar cutaways and hard-to-reach contours. I find a use for them all!"
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

Important: A separate pad should be used for each grade of polishing compound, to avoid adding scratches to the finish. Apply the compounds in sequence, from coarse to fine grades.

Colors may vary.

Best large area polisher on the market

By

This is a great way to polish large areas and blend into existing finishes and do no damage. It can be used with all compounds, is quick and cleans up easily. Should have a few of these in the shop.

Time Saver

This has saved my joints a lot of pain. I used to do a lot of hand work not now. When I first started I got one and washed it between compounds (I am sure they are going OMG) not the way you should use them but I got lucky I guess never had any problems. Now I have one for each lol. Stew Mac comes thru again.

Even though I have the awesome new Stew-Mac buffing arbor, I still use these guys all the time for smaller jobs on guitars with minor finish issues. Customers are always wowed when they see them in action on their guitars!

These are great for quick buffing jobs when you want to do a light buffing or can't be bothered firing up the pedestal buffer.
