Converting an angle grinder into a buffer/polisher?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I have a 6" angle grinder with adjustable speed setting just wondering how you convert one to use for polishing, is there a kit you can buy or would padding out the grinding disc and putting a polishing cover over it be ok? if not a teeny bit dodgy :D

 

Cheers all

One problem with most of the variable speed ones that I have tried to put a mop on.

Its that they have no torque at the lower speed and burn out the motor in about 5-10 mins.

 

You need one that can keep the same speed regardless of load.

 

Then standard profesional mops will screw straight on the thread of the angle grinder. You just need to take care that you dont burn through the paint, and use a goot quality compound and keep it nice and wet and keep it moving and extra care on corners etc..
