The abrasive nylon comes in three grades:
Very Fine A – Leaves a super smooth finish a very light brushed surface finish, perfect for a finish on gold or silver.
Fine A – a little coarser than the very fine grade, ideal for precious metals and also finishing aluminium, brass, copper etc.
Super Cut – The coarsest of the finishing wheels, leaves a deeper scratch pattern but excellent for taking out dirt or rust. Perfect for pre-polishing and preparing the metal.
Super cut is the most popular grade as it works brilliantly on castings, it cuts through the casting surface preparing the metal for polishing.
- All grades provide an even, blended finish which is easy to polish up from
- They come with a plastic internal taper which is ideal to use with a bench polisher with a taper/pigtail.
- No need for compound, the grit runs throughout the material. Ideal for clean finishing.
Please note that these finishing wheels have the abrasive nylon fixed radially – not in a horizontal lap style so they are more compact and keep their form for longer. Lap Mops come in a bigger range of sizes and grades.
These wheels as the name suggests are particularly good for use on precious metals. The ideal use for them is smoothing and pre-polishing castings, taking off the casting skin.
They leave an attractive, even satin finish.
