High gloss finishes without swirl marks
Fits variable-speed hand drills

Your finishes can have a more 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, 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.

Foam Saves the Day

I purchased a used P bass body that was in rough shape cosmetically . I tried polishing by hand with some Stewmac preservation polish , and it came out ok but I wanted a little more shine . I ordered two 3410 pads and some swirl remover compound. I polished the body twice and the body came out incredibly well ! I finished up with the preservation polish and it's like brand new. Don't hesitate, buy these ! Worth the money !

Wish I'd had this sooner

You hear people talk about how they get jobs done without the proper tools and how they don't need to buy things from Stew Mac. Well all I can say is they are dead wrong. This makes my life so much easier. Bodies come to a beautiful lustrous shine and polishing out necks and fretboards is a snap. Stew Mac has the right tools for the job-every time!!!!!!

Foam Polishing Pad

First time using one,with a bit of practice works great. I put one in a drill press and with a box cutter squared off the bottom, now it gets those inside corners.

Ideal partner for polishing compound

Great tool! Results inversely proportional to the price. I get a great glossy finish with my mere hand drill. Impressive!

Works Great

Used this product for the final polish with swirl remover and the guitar looks amazing!. Achieved a very good mirror finish. I used wool for the higher grit compounds. The combination worked great. I would definitely consider getting more of these for other compounds after this test.

Great investment

An easy way to enhance your finishes. I mean I'm not an expert yet. But this pad has put me in the way to get great results on my projects. I recommend it.
