Especially designed to conform to the concave surfaces of bowls or goblets. They are available in three different fabrics - one for each of the compounds and wax used in the Beall Buffing System: all-linen for the Tripoli compound, linen and cotton for the White Diamond compound, and the all cotton-flannel for the Carnauba Wax application*. It is possible to turn them at 1,725 rpm like the 8" wheels included in The Wood Buff Kit, but because of their smaller size and surface speed, they will produce much better results at higher rpms. *Each Buff is color coded to mark its place in the buffing process - an orange cloth disc backs the Tripoli buff, the White Diamond buff stays white, and the Carnauba Wax buff is marked with a yellow cloth disc.
Mounting Bowl Buffs:
1. If you are using a stationary motor to turn the Bowl Buff, slide the standard Combination Aluminum Adaptor onto its shaft, removing the inner sleeve, if necessary, and tightening the set screws. If you plan to mount the Bowl Buff on a wood lathe, first slide the tapered end of the Morse Taper Lathe Attachment into the headstock of your lathe, then mount the Combination Adaptor on the Attachment's un-tapered end, tightening the Adaptor's set screws against the flat side of the Morse Taper. For extra security, the tapered end of the Morse Taper Attachment is drilled and threaded to accept a length of standard 1/4"-20 all-thread (not included) so that you can lock the Taper securely into your lathe's headstock. You can also mount the bolt end of the Bowl Buff in a portable drill.
2. Spin the Bowl Buff's bolt into the threaded hole in the Combination Adaptor.
