Just curious, do any of you have a buffing rig?
Home made or a manufactured setup? Been checking out the rig that
Norwood Pipe Repair has but have held off getting one.
I get a new pipe and the wood is beautiful. After a couple months the
wood is dark, dull, and ya can't even see the grain anymore. I'm sure
the buffer would keep a pipe shiney but does keeping a pipe buffed up
reduce the darkening?
Do you remove the carnuba then reapply every so often? Do you buff up
pipes weekly, monthly, once a year?
As you might tell, I don't know anything in this area.
Opinions and recomendations appreciated ... Thanks
The Baldor is certainly the best buffing motor out there, but
expensive; for under $100 you can get the Foredom BL-1, which is also
an industrial buffing motor, but has continuously variable speed.
If you're interested in learning more, I wrote a buffing/polishing
FAQ a number of years ago for ASP, and it's on the web site at:
