I needed a buffing system…

That is a great tip. I think I’ll try that. But why not cut the roller holder off the handle and insert a shaft to drive it with. And it doesn’t need to be the 9” rollers only you can use the smaller ones too. Great tip!!!!

Very innovative!

No lathe here but maybe my drillpress could do this.
