How do I know when to use a buffing wheel rake?


Proper use of a buffing wheel rake is key to maintaining your Buffing Wheel's performance. Signs indicating it's time to rake include excessive metal polishing compound on the wheel, decreased residual aluminum dust during buffing, and a silver-ish shine on the wheel's edge. Raking the buffing wheel removes excess compound and restores the wheel's effectiveness. It should be part of your maintenance routine, followed by application of fresh metal polishing compound. Regular use of a rake ensures consistent, outstanding results. Pay attention to these signs to know when to rake during your metal polishing routine.


How should a buffing wheel rake be used?


To effectively use a buffing wheel rake, it is important to follow these guidelines. First, ensure that the buffing wheel is running at its regular speed. Next, securely position the rake against a stationary bench grinder or lathe. If using an angle grinder, exercise extra caution to avoid accidentally releasing both the grinder and rake. To provide stability, anchor the rake to the ground with your feet while holding the angle grinder securely against it. This approach allows for the removal of metal polishing compound buildup and the softening of the buffing wheel's edges without compromising its integrity.

About

Description: Buffing wheel rake (head only).

Typical Application: Cleaning, fraying, and facing buffing and polishing wheels.

About: Buffing wheel rakes are designed specifically for edge cut cotton buffing wheels. The main purpose is for cleaning and to remove glazing but they are also very effective at fraying the face of new lathe cut cloth buffs prior to use. Although not as effective as a crystolon or pumice stone, wheel rakes can be used to shape or remove glue from the face of polishing wheels as well. Light raking is an essential part of an initial facing and the entire buffing process. Allows for improved compound retention, reduced waste, and higher quality finishes. For optimum performance and life of the head rake buffing wheels frequently and lightly.


Construction: Mild steel. Two formed channels producing 4 rows of teeth. Drilled at standard spacing to fit most handles.

Packaging: Sold individually, in packs of 10, or by a case of 100.

Precautions: To help prevent accidents and injury rake buffs lightly at first and gradually increase pressure if necessary. Wear all appropriate safety clothing, eyewear, and respiratory protection during use. Teeth are very sharp and can cause severe injury if use carelessly or improperly

Note: Industrial grade. Guaranteed for quality and performance.
