Buffing Wheel Equipment for Knives
Charged with fine abrasives to bring your knife blade to a mirror-like finish, our metal buffing polishing wheels are available in a variety of materials. The buffing wheel material ideal for your purposes depends on your project, so it’s best to keep different kinds handy for each material you work with. Fine muslin buffs are made to polish and shine soft materials, such as wooden handles and sheaths, but it takes a tougher material to give steel blades that sought-after sheen. No matter if you’re making your first letter opener or your hundredth knife, having the right buffing and polishing accessories for the job is key. Complete your metal polishing kit with our polishing compounds!
Bushing to reduce arbor sizes
A sewed muslin wheel is the best “General Purpose” wheel you can buy.
These wheels can be used with just about any compound successfully.
Available in 25 ply Spiral sewed or 65 or 80 ply Concentric sewed.
Made from full-disc 3/8" spiral sewed muslin sections glued together
with a canvas disc cemented on each side to prevent edge breakdown. A
hard wheel that produces aggressive cutting action when grease-less
compound is applied. Wide face gives greater surface contact and a
smooth metal removal.
The loose muslin section buff has one row of sewing around the hole.
These wheels are ultra soft and flexible allowing reach into uneven
surfaces. The primary use is buffing or coloring with a rouge to bring
the part to a brilliant shining color.
The unique capabilities of the sisal wheel increase production and
decrease cost by doing the job in half the usual time. When used in
conjunction with the cut and color bars, the sisal wheel will simply
whisk away the polish marks, light pits and other minor surface defects
leaving steel, stainless steel or brass a flat color with all scratches
removed. This usually eliminates the need to use finer grits when going
from polishing to coloring. It is often used as a “final” finish in
itself when a satin look is desired. Our sisal wheels are 9 ply, 6" and
8" are 1/4" spiral sewed, 10" and 12" are 3/8" spiral sewed, cloth
covers help hold the wheels solid.
Our accurately balanced felt wheels are made of 100% selected long fiber
wool. They contain no resins, lacquers or synthetic fibers. Felt wheels
are available in three densities: 1) Soft felt is recommended for
rounded surfaces and jobs requiring little pressure or cutting action,
such as coloring. 2) Medium felt is the most often used by both gun and
knifemakers. It will readily adapt to flat or rounded surfaces and can
be used in both buffing and coloring operations. 3) Hard felt is most
often used on flat surfaces or where it is necessary to contour the
wheel to the configuration of the work.
The blending capabilities of a sisal wheel combined with the polishing
power of a treated muslin buff. Use this wheel to cut while removing
scratches at the same time, works great with Black Magic compound. 3/8"
