Sunshine Polishing Buff, 3" x 1/2"

Item Number: 330183

Harness the power of soft, effective Sunshine® Cloth, with its special non-scratch micro-abrasives, in a buff that doesn't require polishing compound! If you've been buying regular buffs and compound to use with it, you're going to love just buying a buff already impregnated with an abrasive compound. No more applying a messy compound to a dry wheel. No more messy compound flying off the wheel and getting all over your clothes. This wheel is aggressive and will remove metal quickly, yet it will give a high shine as well. Use a light touch, just as you do when using the cloth. Too much pressure and you may leave black smudges on the piece. These marks easily wipe off, however, leaving a high shine. Also removes tarnish easily for quick touch-ups!
This wheel has a durable leather center and three rows of stitching.

Brand: Sunshine Cloth
Dimensions: 1/2"H x 3" dia.
Country of origin: Japan
Catalog page: 2014 Tools and Equipment Catalog p.387

please note: With first use, the material will appear to degrade quickly, but this is just during the first use. As soon as you get further into the wheel it will hold its shape better. Don't be concerned when the buff turns black on the surface; just like the cloth, the material turns black due to the compound, but is still useful.
