Buffing brushes have long been used to bring a wax polish up to a shine. I use this buffing brush on my lathe in conjunction with the Treatex Hardwax Oil, which has a wax content. After three or four coats of oil are dry on the work, I take it to the buffing brush and gently brush over the work at around 1000rpm. This evens out the finish and adds depth and lustre to it. Can be mounted on the Chestnut buffing system or directly into the chuck or drill chuck.
