Buffy Pad System - Finish Sanding Made Easy
Use these helpful tools so finish sanding won’t wear you out.
Osborn® brushes and the Buffy Pad system are the efficient and easy-to-use alternatives to everyday sandpaper. They make quick work of removing wood fuzz (called felting), and are gentle yet effective when used on hand-peeled logs and delicate wood fixtures that require a light touch. Osborn brushes are also excellent for wood and log homes that must be prepped entirely by hand.
Where to use:
Use the Buffy Pad and Osborn® Brushes finish sanding systems to remove felting produced by power washing and media blasting, or to more efficiently hand-sand any wood surface. Excellent for gentle prep on softer woods.
Non-woven steel-free pads – no rusting bits left behind on the wood
Three-part system reduces equipment fatigue and costs less than integrated buffing pads
Gentle enough for even soft woods
Use with a variable speed grinder for efficient and easy work
There are three parts that complete the Buffy Pad System; the Backer Pad, Grabber Pad and Buffy Pad:
The Backer Pad is the blue and white pad that screws onto the 5/8" X 11" grinder/polisher arbor.
The Grabber Pad protects the much more expensive Backer Pad from damage.
The Buffy Pad is pressed and twisted into the Grabber Pad (and then pressed into it again and reverse twisted, for solid holding power).
The 5" diameter Buffy Pads are excellent for de-felting and removing loosely-held, weathered coatings, as well as bare, weathered wood. They are more gentle than Osborn™ Brushes, they better preserve fine log details like draw-knife ridges, and are particularly effective on interior and exterior surfaces. If used for an entire log home, it can take 100 to 200 Pads per average-sized home. Buffies work best to reduce cob-blasting texture – without removing all of the valuable stain-holding roughness. They leave little or no swirls in the wood and work faster than random orbital sanders. Great on most hand-rail spindles and on most flat surfaces (as well as round)! The only drawback is that they do not impart significant texture to the wood all by themselves.
