MM. Thanks for your comment.
I tried that way first, thinking it was the easiest, but my buffer starts
at 2000RPM goes to 7000RPM. It tended to burn the leather center.
Ended up just holding the spindle and winding the pad on by hand.
But thanks for posting.
Is there any hard and fast rules on speed of buffer for different applications.
As in different metals/compounds ---different RPM.
Orvet, I shied away from that type because you can't get them in 3 inch.
That's the size I wanted to stay in the hobby size.
I can't ever see myself as a pro knifemaker.
Just like messing around with fixing,rehandling / collecting. You were right when you said fixing was
more addictive than collecting.
