When a foam pad simply won't cut it
Buff & Shine's 7.5 inch 100% Twisted Wool Cutting Pad has what it takes to restore oxidized gel coat, heavily scratched paint, aluminum, diamond plate and more! Simply attach to a 6 inch backing plate on your rotary buffer and get to work! The 7.5 inch size is the sweet spot between too big and too small.
The secret to the immense cutting ability of this wool pad lies in its unique construction. Made using 100% wool twisted into hundreds of individual strands, the twisted design allows the pad to operate at a consistent level of aggressiveness for longer periods. This unique design also makes for a rugged pad that can withstand extended polishing sessions.
The pad has a diameter of 7.5 inches but the thick pile gives it an overall diameter of 8 inches. The Buff & Shine Wool Cutting Pad is intended for severe swirls, scratches and heavy oxidation. Because this is a more aggressive pad, you'll want a compound to get the best results.
A note about fluffing a wool pad: Wool pads are known to cake up but it's an easy fix. With the polisher turned off, lay it down on the ground with the pad facing up. Set the speed to the lowest setting and turn it on. Hold a pad spur against the pad as it turns. The pile will fluff up in just a few seconds.
Your other option is to have 3 or 4 wool pads on hand so you can simply switch pads when one becomes caked. To clean any wool or foam pads on your rotary polisher, use the Autogeek System 2000 Pad Washer. This unique wash system consists of a 5 gallon bucket containing 8 agitator wheels and a large fluid pump to pull water from the bottom of the bucket up to the pad. The Pad Washer uses the motion of your polisher to wash and dry foam and wool pads. Click on the icon at the bottom of the page for more information.
