What to use your Felt Bob with?
You can use felt bobs in any rotary tool – such as a micromotor, pendant drill, flexible shaft machine or simple Drill. Check recommended speeds for polishing.
Felt Bob – Options Available:
- Medium- Ideal for cutting and polishing operations, this is a good standard felt for most materials
- Hardened- Standard felt is treated to make it hard and less flexible. It gives you more cut and therefore particularly suits harder metals.
- Shaped felts are more likely to keep their shape when hardened.
- Other shapes available – Cones, bullnose, points, balls, trapeze and also bespoke shapes are all available.
- Extended spindle are also available. – More spindle sizes are available please call us.
