Scotch Bright Pad in Dremel


Recommended Posts

I have made my own Scotch Bright buffing pads for my Dremel for years using the mini-arbor for the tiny cut off wheels.  I just cut circles from the pad I want to use & push the screw through the center with a washer on either side.  I usually use a double thickness.   It doesn't matter if they are exact because they quickly become rounded from wear.  I've been known to use them until they've worn down to the washers like the reddish ones in the pictures.

I have done this for years & is one of my most frequent Dremel uses.

Cool! Thank you for the money saving tip.

I don't have a dremel nor the small air tool yet for cutting and polishing. Which is better?

'Tools and Tricks' board=good idea.

both have their  pros and cons...

need air compressor for the air tool.. and  lugging  air hose around..   but   still need power for the dremel...

Hot days,  I like the  air tool...  much  cooler in the hand.   and  cheapo  die grinders are still  ~20 bucks..

I find Scotch pads to be pretty gentle especially as there is no backer behind it.  I am going to use it on corroded brass contacts this time.  I have used it on corroded alloy wheels, SS pistols (with a frosted finish already), swords & knives (steel),

Scotch pads without a backer, are not as abrasive as sanding discs or drums. 

The Dremel is high speed but not all that powerful.  Not as strong as a die grinder.  Don't need air to use it.  My original Dremel was better made than this one & this one is 25 years old.
