Sounds like you polished everything in the studio? Are you using the
larger radial bristle disks meant for the benchtop polisher?
Couple of things to consider and this goes for the flexshaft variety
Group them in parties of three or more. The added surface area will
help you work faster and more efficiently.
If you used polishing compounds for all the work you performed,
sounds like you would be going back and forth cleaning off all that
polish. With Radial Bristle discs, you don’t have to clean the metal
between discs. I find that a huge time savings myself, especially for
What speed are you running the discs at? They like higher speeds,
whereas the new FX wheels like slower ones. The discs won’t wear out
as fast with higher speeds and in a bunch.
