This sturdy plastic MiniMat hub is ideal for replacing a worn out hub or for expanding your finishing capabilities by allowing you to set up a variety of bristle configurations, ready to use as needed. MiniMat texturiing wheels help you create a beautiful textured finish—quickly and easily—on your flex shaft, mini-lathe or micromotor (a 3/32" screw mandrel is required; available separately). The wire bristles deliver an even, professional textured finish.
To prepare the wheel, remove the top of the hub and slip the ring on the end of each bristle pair over the pegs as needed to acheive the fullness you want for your brush. Bristles are created in pairs with a ring connecting them. Each peg holds approx. 5–8 bristle pairs, depending on the wire size. Mix & match bristle diameters, if desired, to customize the finish. Replace bristles as needed to keep the wheel performing effectively.
