Surprise! Hilzinger got their "Demon" machine up and running. Sporting Hilzinger’s dense 86/82 cloth with a firm mill treatment, these buffs take advantage of extra-wide clinch rings to pack EVEN MORE cloth into these beasts than our original grey buffs; the result delivers excellent compound retention and sustained, extra-firm cutting action throughout the buff’s life. With an additional 11% material, these buffs contain almost 67% more material than a standard 10" airway buffing wheel. Please note that these are experimental new buffs that have not been exhaustively evaluated at 6k+ RPM. Assembled in the USA!
Regular price $46.99 CAD

Premium European-style, firm buffing wheels designed for aggressive cutting.

After a long wait, we're proud to introduce Spectrum Professional Series buffing wheels made by Hilzinger America. These buffing wheels sport higher grades of raw material than are regularly available in North America, and come combined with exceptional construction and clinch ring strength. Though they come at a greater cost, they more than make up for it through enhanced durability, efficiency, retained firmness throughout their lifespan, and - more importantly - finer finishes in less time/fewer steps. Please note that the cotton used in these buffs tends to hold compound much better than domestic fabrics - as a result, particularly after a break-in period, it's easier to accidentally overload your compound. A little goes a long way!

To achieve a beautiful mirror finish, metal (like any material) needs to be prepared by cutting down the surface to level out highs and lows. Deep scratches diffuse light and reduce your clarity; cut them out with coarse cutting compounds and firm buffing wheels that enhance the cut-down effect! Sporting Hilzinger’s dense 86/82 cloth with a firm mill treatment, these buffs take advantage of extra-wide clinch rings to pack as much cloth as possible into these beasts; the result delivers sustained, smooth cutting action throughout the buff’s life.

Hilzinger Max RPM: 14" x 5" = 1,700 RPM

Please note that while these buffs are being used without issue at 5k, 6k, and even 8.5k RPM, Hilzinger-Thum/Hilzinger America will not warranty buffing wheels run at excessive speeds. Do so at your own risk. Because Hilzinger has pushed their production machinery to its limits (at our request) to produce these buffs, you may notice small gaps between the material and clinch rings on some individual buffs. Rest assured that this simply because the material has become, effectively, incompressible, and that is it still well-secured in the ring. Keep in mind also that European-style clinch rings leave these gaps more visible than other clinch ring styles, which also have hidden gaps.

Hilzinger-Thum has been making buffing and grinding tools for over 120 years and is one of the few companies recommended by Menzerna for buffing wheels. Using the highest quality raw materials available, Hilzinger America in Ohio continues their tradition by producing customized buffing wheels for Spectrum.
