Buffing wheel, 3/4" arbor, 12" soft canton flannel
The FLMW is a 12" soft, single stitched, 15-ply canton flannel wheel typically used for the final buff of your instrument. The FLMW can be threaded directly onto your 3/4" arbor (see suggestions below) or it can be mounted using the FLSF flanges. We recommend that two to four of these wheels be mounted on your buffer to have sufficient surface area to buff your instrument. Our FLR rake is used to clean your buffing wheels to rid them of the excess compound.
Frank Ford recommends that you flood the center of the flannel wheel with cyanoacrylate glue and let it harden. Once hard, you can "thread" the flannel wheel onto the shaft of the buffing assembly. This will help the center of the unreinforced flannel wheel hold up longer. Our flannel wheel comes with a 5/8 inch arbor hole so that it will fit tightly on the 3/4 inch arbor. If you decide to use the cyanoacrylate method referenced above, you will need to either enlarge the hole to 3/4" prior to flooding it with glue, or wait for the glue to dry, then enlarge it with a 3/4" Forstner bit. At that point, it should thread nicely on to the arbor.
