Mounted Buffer

Postby sparts » Thu May 08, 2003 11:15 am

We now use 3 HP Baldor buffers mounted to a bench to polish aluminum parts approximately the size of your hand, sometimes with heavy machine lines. We're having a problem with some of the parts getting ripped out of the hands of the operator. I'm looking to secure the part in a vise and take the buff to the part. I can't find any hand-held buffers that would work like the bench type. A car buffer isn't what I'm looking for. Any ideas?

Buff block

In the past, we devised a slotted backstop mounted in the lower half of the buff. The slot is big enough for the wheel, but will stop the piece from being thrown under and back by the wheel. With this stop in place, the part can only go a few inches and is stopped.

I'm thinking more in terms of something like a flex shaft hand-held buff, but i need to get more info to see if one is made with enough guts to take out the machine lines. Thanks for the reply emkayss
