Radial Bristle Discs used by jewellers, silversmiths, precision engineers and craftspeople are for use on all metals, wood, ceramics and plastics.
Choose from the following grits, 80# being the coarsest to 1 micron being the finest. 3 in a pack. 19mm diameter.
- Yellow, 80 grit
- Red, 220 grit
- Blue, 400 grit

Stack 3 radial bristle discs at a time on your Screw Mandrel. Do not mix the grits. (Can stack up to 6 on a mandrel) No compound is required.

Use Radial Bristle Discs for polishing your surface material at approximately 15,000 RPM on your hand drill and exceeding no more than 35,000 RPM.
To use correctly, be sure, when looking at the top of the mandrel, that the bristles all turn to the right (there is a 3M printed on the back of each disc; this should be facing towards the shaft of the mandrel)
For a pre-polish to polish, work your way through the grades, beginning with the coarsest to the finest.
Unlike natural bristle brushes, there is no need to add compound, so there is no mess and no chemicals!
