The unique Churchill designed finger buff is a very effective finishing tool for the automotive, cutlery, and cookware industries.

TYPE 544-RD buffs are used for heavy duty buffing operations involving steel and aluminum parts. Although the Type 544-RD was developed for heavy buffing, the unique finger construction (overlapping fingers) allows a great deal of flexibility for curved or flat surfaces.

The fingers are constructed of sisal twine wound in cloth sheeting, with various rows of sewing available for each finger.

TYPE 240 buffs are an all-cloth variation of the Type 544-RD, with many of the positive features of the Type 544-RD. The all-cloth construction enables these buffs to be very flexible and work extremely well in cut and color operations as well as in pure color operations. The specific finishing application dictates the type of cloth used in the buff and the number of rows of sewing in each finger. The most common construction is a Type 243, which denotes three rows of sewing per finger.

TYPE CO buffs are constructed with alternating fingers of cord sisal and cloth. These fingers combine the fast cutting action of sisal with the color and compound retention qualities of cloth. Each cloth finger acts as a compound reservoir for the hard working sisal fingers. The overlapping fingers act as a fan, circulating air through the buff and the part, reducing heat and providing longer buff life.

TYPE 300 buffs were among the first Churchill products developed, and have enjoyed high popularity since their introduction. Type 300 buffs are made of unsewn folded cloth fingers designed to flare out at the point of contact with the work piece.

These products are excellent for buffing sloped and curved parts. The finger action is unique in that only the finger in contact with the part is deflected, allowing the next finger to provide maximum cut. Type 300 buffs are also available with various rows of sewing per finger.

Churchill finger buffs are available in 8” to 18” diameters with various cloth materials. All Churchill buffs can be dip treated to alter the buffs’ flexibility and firmness, and are available with various arbor holes.
