8 In. Low speed, long shaft buffer #81-608 for polishing surfaces of woods, metals, plastics, hardware, rocks, jewelry and more! Extra long shafts extending out from the motor housing gives extra space for moving projects around the buffing wheel. Low 1,750 RPM speed helps prevent over-heating of finishes or project surfaces when buffing excellent for maintaining sharp edges on chisels & blades, putting buffed finishes on wood turnings, or just keeping other shop hand tools and home furnishings in tip-top, rust free, polished condition.
Features

  • Powerful 1/2HP 1,750 RPM motor with lifetime lubricated ball bearings for care-free use
  • Dynamically balanced arbor provides for extra smooth operation
  • Extended shafts allow extra space for moving work around the wheels for polishing
  • Threaded shafts will accommodate buffs up to 1-3/8'' wide

What pads and compounds should I get ?
Dale B on Jan 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Dale you might take a look at Bayland Products they have a wide range of buffs and compounds depending what your wanting to buff, I’m a small guitar builder and I use the buffer with four 10” buffs, two on either side and I think this setup is ideal for what I do. Happy Buffing
