    I am thinking of picking up one of those Shop Fox buffing arbors, already have a motor, pulley, and belt. The description says it will accommodate 10" wheels. Can anyone point me in the right direction for buffing wheels and compound sources ? I'd like to get the best bang for my buck. Also see where folks are mounting more than one wheel per side. Anyone know if that's possible with this arbor ?

    Thx, Mike

    I am also thinking about that Shop Fox unit . When I buy it, I will get wheels and compound from Jescar.

    And some more fret wire while I'm there.

    And ...I thought I'd do two wheels per side . I bet it is helpful (or even critical to have the same number of wheels on each side.

    Now the folks that really know can tell us. [emoji1]

    I've been using a Shop Fox setup for about 8 years. It works great. I've always used 12" buffing wheels on mine and never had a problem. I also run it at times with a drum sander on one side and nothing on the other. Doesn't seem to be a problem.
