About This Item

For a professional quality gloss
The best soft cotton wheels for buffing instruments to a mirror finish.

  • Gentle touch for instrument finishing.
  • Fluffy cotton fits into curves and crevices.
  • Pleated airways keep the wheels cool.
  • 16-ply bleached flannel built on steel core.

Canton cotton is the most-used choice among instrument finishers. Canton flannel wheels fluff out to a wide, soft buffing surface that conforms to any shape. Ideal for all guitar finishes, as well as plastics and metals. (Metal blackens any wheel, so many shops save one wheel for metals only.)

Domet cotton is the very softest available. Use Domet flannel with fine compound to get an extra-high gloss. A versatile buffer setup uses Canton wheels on one side (Medium compound) and Domet on the other (Fine compound).

14"-diameter wheels fit the StewMac Buffing Arbor, with its sturdy 1"-diameter shaft.

12"-diameter wheels fit our old buffing arbor and other buffers with a 3/4"-diameter shaft.

Sold individually.

Important: Install two or more wheels per side to create wide buffs for instrument work. Don't mix different compounds on the same wheel.

These wheels are included with our Guitar Buffer Complete Outfit.

Great Buffing Wheels

By

Verified Buyer


If you ever wondered why some people think buffing to a "see yourself in the photo" shine is easy, and some say it is hard, these are part of the reason.

I use 2K [catalyzed] clear coat and it is much harder to buff than Lacquer; yet these things will cut and cut and cut. Make sure you get a rake so they run true and you can clean them from time to time.

I like the wuality of the materials. I'd like it to come with a thing that works to fix it to another axe. These are also a bit thin for my taste, I should've bough two of each. Nice product anyway :)

Great, but beware the flange size!

By

Verified Buyer


The wheels appeared to be good quality, but beware that the inner metal disk is quite large and require a large set of expensive flanges for either side of the wheel, especially when stacking multiple wheels. SM has these large flanges for their buffing arbor assembly, but does not sell them individually.

I use 3 Canton wheels on the left (fine compound) and 3 Domet on the right (extra fine compound) of my Stew Mac buffer which gives excellent results.
