Topic tags/keywords: random orbit sander buffing pad

I have a DeWalt ROS (D26453K) and would like to know if there’s a compatible buffing pad for it so that I can buff out paste wax on my table saw, jointer, etc. I wouldn’t use a dedicated buffer enough to justify buying one so am looking for an alternative.

If you can find a Velcro backed pad, it should work.
These might work.

This one is a little big but the back is smaller and hooks to the velcro. I’ve used it on my Porter-cable ROS with good success.

I glued a circle of sheepskin to a worn ROS disc with contact cement and slap it on my ROS when I need to buff wax. When it gets dirty/loaded up, I clean it with some mineral spirits.

Saddle shops are a good source of free sheepskin scraps.
