Scotchbrite wheels

Scotchbrite wheels

Good day fellow travellers. I am seeking a bit of advice on using scotchbrite  wheels on my bench top polisher, a fairly powerful Crusen.  I am looking at 6-8 inch wheels  but am niot sure what colours and grades there are. any advice would be a help. I will be using  wheels for polishing steel brass and ally and the occasional bit of rust removal, and also to bring back some car boot tools to life.

very best wishes

Mike

Re: Scotchbrite wheels

I buy the ones of the bay, red 8" and 4 ply. under £9 delivered. They don`t last a long time, but the results are good.
If you require a mirror finish, stitched wheels and polishing compound would be the way to go.
Regards
Glen.

Re: Scotchbrite wheels

Thanks for that, I bought a couple over the week end  red ones and they seem to do a very good job.

Re: Scotchbrite wheels

The following company that I've purchased regularly from in the past offer a huge range of different polishing / abrasive / scotchbrite (satin) mops etc  at reasonable costs. Their website also provides lots of information on the subject as well as guides on the different levels of abrasion of polishes and satin mops etc. I have no other connection to them other than I've bought off them in the past.
