polish stainless.

I have a 6" bench grinder and I would like to buy a buffing wheel to help speed up polishing the stainless trim from my car that I have removed while the body is being painted.

what wheel do i need to buy, can i get it from home depot?

The manufacturer may be able to sell you that wheel online. Not sure, just an idea. Good luck!!

A grinder buffing wheel will only allow you to buff the smallest parts. If you check at any hardware store or Box store, they should explain on the package what they can be used for.

IIRC It's more about the buffing compond you use than the wheel itself. And once you use one compound on a wheel, you need to switch wheels for another grit. Thats why shops that do this have a bunch of Baldour buffers mounted on their benches.

Also, depending on the car, is it really SS or chrome plated? You have to be careful buffing chrome, you can burn right through it to the base metal. Buffing can be kind of an art.
