Why Felt Bobs are used for Polishing?

A Best Solution For Polishing Smaller Areas

People may always pick what they need and prefer based on the workings or shapes of the various polishing accessories, which are available in many industries. For instance, the buffing wheel and polishing pads. Though, there is an additional polishing tool known as the Felt Bobs. They can be used to polish challenging and small areas that a buffing wheel or pad cannot reach.

Here, we will discuss certain characteristics of Felt Bobs that are encountered more often in the workplace, to answer most inquiries.

What are Felt Bobs?

Mounted Felt Bobs are used for metal polishing. After applying a compound to the felt, a mirror-like appearance can be produced on all metals by either polishing or cutting. Felt bobs are available on several spindles and in a wide range of sizes and shapes, depending on the application and tools employed.

Why are felt bobs used for polishing?

Felt polishing wheels and bobs are superior to other materials, in their ability to accept different polishing compounds and slurry. Felt balls are encompassed of wool. Sheep wool is considered as one of the strongest natural fibres since it recalls its edge and form throughout its lifespan.

Since the surface of felt does not become glassy, the polishing chemical used on new felt surfaces is equivalent. When the felt surface wears away, a new surface forms and preserves the polishing compound so that the polishing procedure can continue. The surface of the felt is not glassy.

How felt bob is used on a Dremel wheel?

We all know that felt Bobs wheels are used to polish plastic, metal, porcelain, and glass.

Here, we will define how the felt Bobs works with Dremel. Following the procedures:

  1. Prepare mandrel, felt polishing wheel, and compound, as well as the Dremel instrument.
  2. One side of the felt wheel has a pre-poked or pre-drilled hole, so the mandrel may simply be perverted into the hole. Make sure that the mandrel is not extended from the top.
  3. Install the felt wheel on the Dremel machine. Open the Dremel, insert the bur entirely, and tighten it by hand as much as possible. Then, take the wrench tool while holding down the lock button.
  4. Apply the polishing compound on the area to be polished and massage it in.
  5. Using the tool with the felt polishing wheel, begin to eliminate dust and other debris. Please make sure that you have read the operating and safety instructions before beginning your project.
  6. Select the suggested rpm speed for the Dremel, and then polish using the felt wheel.

How should the felt bobs be stored once the project is complete?

Allow the felt wheel to continue spinning for some minutes after polishing and buffing are complete so that any residual polishing compound deposit can spit out. Allow the felt wheel to air dry before storing it to avoid mold growth.
