Conveniently mounted between lathe centers using a special 17" long mandrel, the Beall lathe-mount wood-buffing system is a fast and effective method of finishing wood.
After sanding, apply a penetrating oil finish (tung oil sealer is ideal), let dry and buff using the tripoli bar on the all-linen buff to remove sanding scratches. Follow this with the white diamond bar on the combination linen/flannel buff to further refine and polish the finish, then complete the process with carnauba wax and the all-flannel buff. The resulting finish is similar to a multi-coat lacquer in appearance, yet it is achieved in minutes. Although scratches are removed, crisp detail is not softened.
The system, used with any lathe with a #2 Morse taper and a 9" swing, includes the mandrel, mounting hardware (spacers, washers and retaining nuts), three buffing wheels (labelled White Diamond, Tripoli and Wax) as well as the matching compounds and wax. The mandrel has a #2 Morse taper on one end and a cup center on the other. Buffs are spaced about 4" apart. Instructions included.
