Hi Jamie. i have the Beall buffing system and a video came with it. You can veiw the video on line under Beall. I was surprised how you use them. I don t think you can see any of th4e compound on the wheels. I know they sure throw the threads when they are new.
anyway, the video says to load the Tripoli wheel up good and bear down on the part all over buffing with good pressure. Then you lightly load up the whit diamond wheel and buff the part which I think they said removes any tripoli left on it. That is a once over pass,

Then you lightly load the was wheel and give the part a quick buff not dwelling on it or going over a lot.

I have experimented with different kids of raw wood and finished wood and some raw wood buffs better than others. you just have to try out the special you have to see the difference. Also. on a finished part, let the finish dry good before buffing. I waited at least 4 days.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks, Jim, I’ll find the video. I’ve read about (and experienced) the Flying Fluff. Also have seen recommendations for conditioning the wheels, have to find the threads. Glad to hear that the invisibility isn’t another sign of aging. ;-)
