New 8 Inch Buffer Features Variable Speeds, Less Vibration, and Operator Safety

Manufacturing an industrial buffer to meet shop use demands was just what JET® had in mind when they developed their new 8 in. Industrial Buffer.

This 44lb. benchtop model's entire body is constructed of cast iron with a fully-enclosed industrial housing with factory-sealed, pre-lubricated ball-bearings for reliable, long life use. Rubber mounts at the buffer's base help eliminate movement, plus dampen vibration.

This new JET buffer was designed with operator safety in mind. The buffer's motor includes brake resistors to shut down the wheels' rotation so they come to a complete stop in less than 20 seconds.

Another big advantage of this industrial buffer is its variable-speed motor that operates from 900 to 3600 RPM. Plus, there's no on/off rocker switch. The power interface features an electronic touch pad panel with a power on/off control, flanked by up and down arrows to adjust and monitor the buffer's speed.

The 1 HP buffer operates on prewired 115V current with a 230V option. The buffer has a standard 5/8 in. shaft with 8 x1/2 in. buffing wheels. It also incorporates spiral and half-spiral buffing wheels.

JET's 8 in. Industrial Buffer has received CSA/US certification in meeting strict safety guidelines and electrical requirements.

The JET buffer can be used to buff the high and low spots in metal or create a mirror finish in aluminum, stainless steel, brass or copper.

The JET 8 in. Industrial Buffer (#578218, model no. IBG-8VSB) includes two buffer wheels.
