These felt wheels are made of 100% wool. Felt is a high quality medium, applied together with a suitable compound or paste used in the polishing of metals, precious metals, semi precious stones and glass. In addition, felt gives great results when putting a final polish onto the cutting edge of a blade or chisel. Along with a fine compound, the felt hones and polishes the edge to razor sharpness.
Soft is a relative term; the felt is firm but able to deform slightly making it more suited for use on rounded shapes. When it comes to final honing of edge tools, the soft wheel is best for gouges and curved carving tools.
These felt wheels have a 12.7mm (1/2") plain bore, designed for direct mounting onto the Axminster Craft AC150BB 150mm Buffing Machine. They can, of course, fit onto any similarly designed 12.7mm (1/2") or 13mm shaft. They are not suitable for use with a pigtail type mounting. The thickness of these wheels is 20mm.
We recommend that the user wears eye protection.
Please note: always present the blade or chisel to the wheel so the edge of the tool trails, i.e. the direction of rotation is away from the tool.
