    Long Arbor Buffer

    Here is a buffer a friend and I made. It has a 36" long arbor and 14" buffs. It works really well. We made it primarily for buffing drums and some guitars.

    I see the pulley for the motor, but can't quite see how you have it attached?

    That thing has a lot of reach!

    The motor is mounted on a hinged plate, so the weight of the motor tensions the belt. I will try to get some better pics, I always forget to take the camera to the shop and have to use the camera on my phone which is awful.

    I agree with Brent...that's some serious reach and clearance. Looks great for buffing the sorts of things you're looking at doing.

    Looks very handy.
    Even handier, having a friend who can rig something like that for you.
