12″ Osborn Blue Airway Buffing Wheel (Class 4, 16 Ply, No Center Plate, 3 Pack, Buffs Require 6.5″ Quickcenter Set)
This buffing wheel is a 12″ diameter 5″ center 16 ply buff. It is a firm mill treated buff for cut and color buffing. Heavy duty class 4 construction. High density cloth. This buff will need to be raked prior to initial use. It does not include a center plate, thus it requires a self-centering safety flange set for use with 5″ center buffing wheels. The 6.5″ diameter Quickcenter Safety Flange Kit on this page is the correct flange set for these wheels. (Self centering flange sets eliminates the need for removable or permanent center plates as well as the need for an arbor washer and nut.)
Do not use these wheels at high RPMS. The RPMS should be kept at or under 3000. Some polishers like the Matchless Blue Rouge bar listed on this page as well as under “Rouge Bars and Buffing Wheel Sets” with this buffing wheel. They will use the same rouge bar with the yellow buffing wheel found here, or the untreated buffing wheel, to finish with.
