buffing attachments

#263044 by mikeb » Sun Sep 22, 2019 5:04 pm

Are there any buffing attachments that can be used with a Mark V. I would like to put a nice finish on the bowls I turn.

I like the Three-On Lathe Mandrel and Bowl Buffs from Beall Tool Co.

The problem is that they are made to be driven with the morse taper in a lathe headstock. You could get the set of wheels and compounds without the mandrel and put them on some 5/8" threaded rod. You would need the Shopsmith Keyless Chuck, which has a 5/8" capacity, or some other method of chucking the rod. If you are turning bowls, you may already have a four jaw chuck which would also work. The threaded rod would also need a dimple or hole in the opposite end for a live center.

A simpler, but more time consuming solution is to get the Wood Buff Kit, and mount each wheel separately.
