Felt Buffing Wheels AKA Felt Wheels AKA Buffing Wheels can polish and buff wood, glass, plastic and metal. Felt Wheels are not limited to just round wheels.
Knife Edge Wheels look like flying saucers because they are thick in the middle with tapered edges making it easy to slip into grooves and crevices.
Felt Wheels and Knife Edge Wheels are available in several densities. Soft (0.50 gm/c3), Medium (0.60 gm/c3), Hard (0.70 gm/c3) and Rock Hard (0.80 gm/c3). These densities are accepted worldwide.
Density = Mass divided by Volume. Density is calculated as grams per sq. cm.
Felt Wheels are extensively used for knife sharpening whether they are kitchen knives, butcher knives, hunting knives, carving knives, etc.
Felt Rings are normally used on Glass Polishing/Beveling Machines where water based slurry (cerium oxide) is used. Felt Rings WILL SWELL in water based solutions. Unfortunately, this is a minor characteristic flaw of wool which cannot be avoided.
Felt Wheels and Felt Rings are "trued" at the factory so your buffing and polishing will be even on any surface. This process is similar to how tires are balanced before installation on vehicles.
With a little care, your Felt Wheels and Knife Edge Wheels can last a long time. At the end of your buffing and polishing, allow the felt wheel to continue to spin thru for several minutes so any remaining polishing compound residue can spit out. Then let the felt wheel air dry before storing it to prevent molds. If you are packing your felt wheel in a plastic bag, poke some holes in the bag for air circulation. If the plastic bag is airtight, it can swell and condensation can wet the felt wheel. Then it will start to mold and the felt wheel will become useless.
If you are using more than 1 type of compound, use different buffing wheels for safety reasons. Mixing compounds is not a good idea. Always make sure you label which compound is used with which buffing wheel.
Felt Wheels and Knife Edge Wheels can be attached to name brand power tools like Black and Decker, Dremel, DeWalt, Makita and Ryobi. Large Felt Wheels can be attached to any bench grinder.
