After I reviewed my Beall buffing system, I received several great suggestions mainly to take it apart and mounts the buffing wheels directly to my lathe.
Since the triple buff system has some utility as is, I decided to keep it as is but purchase three new buff wheels to use on my lathe.
Each mount consists of:
- 3/8 inch by 2 inch bolt
- Lock washer
- 2″ diameter washer with 3/8 inch hole
- 3/4 inch wood spacer with 3/8 inch hole and about 1/4 inch thick. This helps the buffing wheel center on the bolt.
- Another 2″ diameter washer with 3/8 inch hole.
- 3/8 inch nut.
Also essential is a spindle extender sized to my spindle. The opposite end accepts the 3/8 inch bolt.
This with the bowl buffs is the system I should have purchased originally and NOT the triple buff system.
