Hello Orchidians, There has recently been a discussion about
converting a grinder to a buffer/polisher. Problem: without
positive air flow and filtration, you have an air quality problem -
not to mention black stuff settling all over.
Got a flyer from Harbor Freight showing a portable air filter with
fan. Item # 41967-3WXA, on sale for $79.99 from catalog and
Internet only. This is not the final answer, but would certainly
help. I like the idea that you can see the filter and change it
when it’s dirty. It also has see-through panels that can extend
over and around the motor. You need to consider the complete width
and heighth of your buffer to see if this unit big enough.
The internet price is $10 more than the flyer, so if you want one,
use the flyer number listed above. Website is
Phone is 1-800-423-2567. No affiliation or interest in the company -
just thought this might be useful. Judy in Kansas
