END FLANGES & CENTER PLATES

End flanges are extremely important for safety when buffing. A pair of proper end flanges MUST be used on all buffing machines (see buffing safety sheet). End Flanges are made of thick steel. The center hole of your end flange set should be the exact size of the diameter of your buffing shaft that the end flanges mount on. End flanges are mounted on the buffing shaft with one end flange on either side of the buffing wheels. This is how you safely stack multiple buffing wheels on a buffing shaft to build a wide buffing wheel face. End flanges are used when buffing with one buffing wheel or twenty. End flanges must be slightly larger than the metal center clinch ring of the buffing wheel that you are using. See the chart below for minimum end flange sizes.
Buffing Wheel Size Proper Size End Flange Flange item # Price per set
All 3" center Airway Buffs 4" End Flange EF4004 $18.50
All 5" center Airway Buffs 6" End Flange EF6006 $36.00
All 7" center Airway Buffs 8" End Flange EF8008 $56.50
The center plate is the thin metal support plate mounted in the center of the buffing wheel. These center plates are to adapt the larger center hole of the buffing wheel down to the small diameter of the buffing machine shaft. They allow air to circulate during buffing and keep the wheels true on the shaft. Buffs are mounted on the buffing machine shaft with one center plate per buffing wheel with a pair of end flanges holding all the mounted buffing wheels together on the shaft. Unless you specify our airway buffs are sold with centerplates per mounted. You can buy center plates separately if you need to.
