Spindle Left & Right Set - 12mm Tapered Buff Spindle

Abbott & Ashby Spindles are used to attach mops and buffs. Suitable for 150mm bench grinders (Left & Right Side) to allow our range of buffing mops etc to be used for the desired finish.

Easy to attach

  • Remove outer wheel guard, grinding wheel and inner guard from the side of the machine that you want to fit the tapered spindle
  • Screw on the tapered spindle noting that the internal thread of the spindle is counter bored to allow the spindle to cover the entire grinder shaft length
  • Carefully screw the buff onto the tapered spindle with the thickest flange facing inwards. Screw on as far as buff will reasonably fit
  • Turn on bench grinder and the buff will tighten further against the tapered spindle, to ensure your safety do not stand infront of the machine when you first turn it on and allow it to run for a minute before bringing your work to the machine.

Loose Leaf & Stitched Polishing Mops

Many applications call for a more refined, brighter finish, from a rough surface to a perfect, mirror-like one. To that effect Abbott & Ashby’s range of cloth mops and cutting compounds allow the tradesman to achieve the desired finish in a multitude of materials, from steel to copper, from aluminium to brass and any other metals or alloys encountered in today’s workplace.


Loose leaf mops are used for polishing all metals and alloys.


Stitched mops are used to obtain a heavy polish on metals and alloys

Buffing Mop Tips

Abbott & Ashby buffing mops and compounds are used in conjunction to obtain a more refined, brighter finish to your work. Buffing mops are available in both loose leaf and stitched calico to ensure that you achieve the desired finish on your metal or alloy workpiece.

  • All mops have tapered centre bores, and may be mounted on the left or right of your grinder using a tapered buffing spindle.
  • Select the correct mop for the job - a stitched mop for cutting back or general purpose work, or a loose leaf calico mop for high gloss polishing - avoid using different compounds on one mop, keep a separate mop for each compound and label it clearly.
  • Dress the mop with compound across the rotating face for a few seconds taking care not to “overload” the mop - it is far better to apply a little compound more frequently than to over dress the mop.
  • After applying the compound, bring the workpiece to the wheel and with light pressure move back and forth across the job.
  • After the job is finished to your satisfaction, remove any compound residue with mineral turpentine or methylated spirits.
