"I make knives, and use this buffer on a daily basis. It has worked for me, using a variety of abrasives and polishes, for 4 years without a problem. At the time I bought it I paid about $70 plus shipping. I highly. recommend this tool for metal and stone work."

Great Polisher

,
April 23, 2013
By Dan2907
from Lago Vista,Tx.
"I make custom knives and needed a high speed polisher for buffing out tool marks and bringing the blade to a high gloss mirror finish.
This price of the Wel Bilt made me skeptical but after checking some other reviews online I decided to chance it.
I was surprised how well the polisher buffed out scratches on blades, hand guards and anything else.
Prior to getting this polisher I used a finish sander and while it worked well this polisher cut down my production time more than I expected.
Changing the pads are quick and simple. The tool is heavy enough to be steady and very quiet.
If you need a great tool at a very reasonable price you can't go wrong with the Wel Bilt Polisher.

Buffer performance

,
January 23, 2013
By TL54
from Colorado
"I have been using this buffer since August 2012. It is a high speed buffer which for many may run too fast, There is quite a lot of vibration, I bolted mine to my work bench. Be sure to wear a mask or resperator especially if your are using compounds"
