Swansdown Buffs - 6" 75 Fold - U-Beaut
These genuine Swansdown Mops from U-Beaut are made in Australia and are one of the best ways to put a brilliant wax finish onto timber, especially if you are using U-Beaut's EEE-Ultra Shine, Traditional Wax, or both! They also work really well with Shellawax and Shellawax Cream.
Using these mops can cut the time it takes to buff a wax finish to just a few seconds, depending on the size of the work to be buffed. These lave a much nicer shine of timber because they work with the grain rather than putting the swirls on the surface that you would get from using a lambs-wool buff that works with a circular motion. These mops also work much cooler than a lambs-wool buff in a drill or angle grinder, which makes them much safer to use on surfaces that could be affected by heat.
These mops are made of genuine swansdown which is woven to form a soft fabric sheet of material called a fold. These sheets are put together in a stack of 50, 75 or 100, cut to size and securely fastened between 2 heavy washers and then the centre hole is punched out.
We currently have 2 sizes available: 4" 50 fold and 6" 75 fold.
Please note: When these mops are new, they will shed a lot of fluff the first few times they are used. To minimise and control this shedding, it is a good idea to condition the mop before using it. This is done by running the mop at high speed, then putting a piece of very coarse abrasive (16 grit is ideal) in contact with the edge of the mop that is used for buffing. This will drag off any loose fibres with a controlled action. This can also be done with a hacksaw blade and a bit of care.
