Well I received my treated sisal wheel the other day thinking that it would be more aggressive in removing aluminum material than my treated ventilated and it didn’t. It would just smear the emery compound onto my part. I thought I could dress it with the rake and it would just fall apart in large clumps. What am I doing wrong?
I’ve been trying to figure out a way to cut down on the hand/orbital machine sanding. I’m trying to remove some of the left over cast pits and sanding marks that I didn’t get out in the sanding process. This is for aluminum valve covers.
Basically, (before I try greaseless) what can you recommend I do to remove more material while working on the buffing motor. My current set up consists of a 3/4 HP baldor motor with a 10″ treated ventilated buffing wheel using Eastwood’s black emery compound.
