Bardo Flex Blend/Finish Wheels

Bardo Flex Blend/Finish Wheels are soft spongy wheels that are used when knife marks put in mouldings during shaping operations that are too deep for Bardo Flex Interleafs. They are so ideally suited for raw moulding sanding because of their cushion (so forgiving) and cutting ability. Machine settings do not have to be perfect for Interleafs and Blend/Finish Wheels like they do with sand belts and harder sanding wheels. On poplar, bass, and MDF surfaces spec#SF-12 does a wonderful job of cleaning up mill marks. Keep in mind, having the sanding head spin INTO the direction of the feed will make removing knife marks easier and faster, plus you can increase the sanding ability by slowing down your feed rate. This specification may also be used on a vertical spindle sander to do raw MDF surfaces for parts like an oval mirror frame or table tops. Spec #SM-12 is used very successfully for stripping finished parts to the bare surface for re-work. When a small OD (3 - 1/2" to 4") is required to get inside to do a 120 grit raw wood sand, spec #AC-12-1140 is an excellent choice.


Bardo Flex Sanding Wheels

Bardo Flex Sandings Wheels are used for a heavier degree of sanding, almost always on hard boards. This solid convolute sanding wheel removes knife marks quicker and more completely than Blend/Finish wheels. Spec #AM-00 provides 120-150 grit sanding ability when sanding mill marks off immediately following shaping on oak, cherry, and other hard mouldings. This versatile spec is also used on vertical spindles on the outer door edges, WHEN SANDING PREDOMINANTLY WITH THE GRAIN. Excellent for case goods and beveled (eased) edges on furniture frames. Spec #SSF-00 is used very successfully on quality MDF mouldings after white primer for a smoother glossy finish.


Bardo Flex Woodworking Wheels

Bardo Flex Woodworking Wheels are polyurethane foamed wheels featuring GARNET as the abrasive grain and are the hardest sanding wheels that we offer. These wheels are comparable with 3Mâs DLG Finishing, Carborundum's Carbo-Cut and Norton's Polybond wheels. They are used ONLY for removing knife marks on very hard moulding such as ASH, HARD MAPLE, ASPEN and HICKORY. There are some who prefer WOODWORKING wheels on the first sanding head when working on MDF moulding with Garnet JL Density 120 grit. Ash requires 40 grit on the first pass and 80 grit on the second pass, whereas hard maple usually only requires 60 grit on the initial sand. For people sanding raised door panels that have either end or cross grain on double-end tenenors, this wheel in Garnet HD 40 grit is used. The wheel is run between 800-1100 RPMs and they use 40 grit for the "climb cut." If they have two sanding stations they use Garnet HD 80 grit for the "finish sand."


Bardo Flex Saw Polishing Wheels

Bardo Flex Saw Polishing Wheels are polyurethane foamed wheels that are impregnated with either Aluminum Oxide or Silicon Carbide abrasive grain. They are available in 24,40 54 grit size in 6", 8", or 10" ODâs for both applying satin finishes to carbon steel circular saw blade faces and re-facing of saw blade faces.

These are generally used on machinery where the circular saw blade spins on a table as the wheel is presented to the saw blade face, as it spins on a fixture, the wheel traverses across the blade either from the center hole towards to sand blasted finish at the edge, or from the outer edge to the center hole.

Bardo Flex saw polishing wheels are absolutely BEST USED IN WET OPERATIONS. They have successfully replaced 3M DBX Finishing, Artifex and Carbo-cut saw finishing wheels.
