Converting an angle grinder into a buffer/polisher?
Posted 03 June 2006 - 04:42 PM
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

Not at all good

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..
