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.

Excellent products!

I bought this to use with the Stew-Mac compounds , actually bought two, one for each compound, to use on my Gibson SG, only a year old and had a big finish flaw from the body expanding then contracting. Worked excellent! I had thought of selling the guitar before I used the products, not anymore

Does the job easily. Hand-polishing is tiresome. Save the elbow grease and get one.

Great

By

Verified Buyer


Might be a little difficult to use if you don’t have a vice or a way to clamp down the guitar, since it’s kind of difficult using a drill motor with one hand but the foam buffing wheel and the stew Mac medium fine and swirl remover worked perfect. The guitar I did had a mirror glass finish now.

This is the second set of them I have purchased. The first set I bought quite a long time ago and felt it was time to replace them. They do a great job of polishing finishes with Stew/Mac polishing compounds.

Better pads

By

Verified Buyer


These pads hold together much better than the older yellow pads. The action of these pads glide much better and polishing material spreads more even.
