Three elements make up the Buffy Pad System. (see right).

The 5" non-woven Buffy Pad is pressed and twisted into the Grabber Pad (and then pressed into it again and reverse twisted, for solid holding power).

The Grabber Pad protects the much more expensive Backer Pad from damage. The Backer Pad screws onto the 5/8" X 11" grinder/polisher arbor. Buffies are excellent for de-felting and removing loosely-held, weathered coatings, as well as bare, weathered wood. They are gentler than Osborn™ Brushes and they better preserve such fine log details as draw-knife ridges, and are used effectively on interior & exterior surface

Buffy Pad system

  If used for an entire log home, it can take 100 to 200 Pads per average-sized home. Buffies work best to reduce cob-blasting texture - without removing all of the valuable stainholding
roughness. They leave little or no swirls in the wood and work much faster than random orbital sanders. Great on most hand-rail spindles and on most flat surfaces (as well as round)! The only drawback is that they do not impart significant texture to the wood all by themselves.

The Buffy Pad System (5" pads):
  • Extremely fast de-felting
  • Gentle, fast prep of new logs, wood
  • Ideal as sole interior prep method
  • Economical
  • Super easy to use and change-out (no lock-nuts, or tools required!)
Buffy Pads should NOT be run at speeds higher than 4,000 rpm! Be sure to wear proper eye, respiratory and hand protection.
Buffy Pad (30 pads per bag)
The non-woven fabric pad that is pressed into the black plastic "T" hooks of the Grabber Pad - and twisted both ways to engage both legs of the hooks.

Our Price $ 45.78 - 2 lbs
  Grabber Pad (10 pads per bag)

This pad holds the Buffies and protects the expensive Backer Pad. Grabber Pads are used up at the rate of about 1 per every 10-20 Buffy Pads.
(Suggested Retail $104.39)
Our Price $ 94.08

Backer Pad (1 each per bag)
This pad attaches to the 5/8" x 11 arbor (i.e., threaded end of the attachment shaft) of grinders and sanders, and holds the Grabber Pad. The rubber, tapered face allows the system to easily follow the contours of irregular wood surfaces.

Makita 9565CV Grinder

Considered the best power tool, for power, lightness in weight, ease of maneuvering, speed control under load, etc., run at about 3,000-4,000 rpm - and no faster.. This abrasive tool can be used all by itself to prep wood surfaces, or it can be used to reduce some of the "felting" and texture that comes from cob-blasting or power-washing (if, for example, the texture resulting from cob-blasting is considered too coarse).

Makita Grinder

5 stage variable speed control dial for matching the RPM to the work.
Improved 12 AMP motor design for increased output power in a more compact tool.
Larger and improved carbon brush material for longer life.
Electronic limiter stops the motor and prevents accidental motor over load and burnout."
"Tool-less" wheel guard adjustment for easy clamping.
Labyrinth construction seals and protects the motor and bearings from dust and debris by creating a complex set of channels.
We no long carry the Makita grinder. This is the recommended tool for log preparation system.

Osborn Brushes

Like Buffy Pads, the grit-impregnated nylon fibers of these filament cup brushes find their way into the irregular contours of logs to prep wood very effectively.

The 80-grit version is usually best, and can be found in both the 4² and 6² size. The 6² size stresses the bearings of a grinder more than the 4², but works faster.

Osborn Brush

If used for an entire log home, can take 1-3 Brushes for an average sized log home. These Brushes screw onto a grinder arbor of 5/8²X11. They work well to remove old coatings and weathered wood.

They leave a bit more texture in smooth (but weathered) wood than Buffy Pads, and can be used to reduce some cob-blasting texture and power-washing felting.

Heavier than Buffy Pads, and lead to more fatigue.
