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.

Buff nitro lacquer finish

By

Verified Buyer


Perfect for nitrocellulose lacquer finishes. I bought buffing compounds too, fine & coarse.
Everything Stew Mac sells is quality. & It's made for guitar use. Why bother looking around, driving around looking for lesser quality stuff, when you can buy from Stew Mac once & be done with it, no driving around no searching.

Polishing Kit

These polish pads are great for polishing my home built P Bass. I don’t have the big buffing wheels that love to own so these little guys have done the job very well. A must for touching up as well.

Positive surprise

By

Verified Buyer


I believe there is nothing quite like a hand Polish and Buff.

However, I was pleasantly surprised how well these polishing pads work, but would suggest you check your progress frequently or you might Buff more than you wanted. I was buffing clear coat and got to aggressive on some hard to reach areas.
Great addition to my tools.

I should have gotten this yerars ago

By

Verified Buyer


I wrote a review on the 4 bottles of various compounds. Highly recommended. I used automotive wool pads with automotive cutting and polishing compounds. It was OK but this foam pad is much better, gloss with no swirl results and easy to clean.

I'm so glad I bought these

They made buffing a snap! I really wanted to avoid spending the money on these, but the turned an hours long buffing process into a really fun and quick process with immediate and gratifying results. Thanks StewMac!

Work good but do not hold up

These foam pads to a nice job but do not hold up very well and will have to br replaced too quickly for the price.

Perfect for first timer

By

Verified Buyer


First time building/finishing guitar. Made the final touches much easier. Buying three at a time gave me one for each grit of polish. Worked well with a cordless drill, easy to control. Bought large, small, cone and concave versions, each had its own nitch with polishing the SG guitar kit. Will buy again!!
