These buffs have 3 or more circles of concentric stitching between the arbor hole and the face. This stitching provides a firmer surface when used with cutting compounds such as Gray Star, Bobbing and Tripoli. Can also be used for both cutting and polishing of harder metals such as platinum.

Made of fine-weave muslin with combed edges and leather centers to hold buffs firmly on tapered spindle.

Loose or Stitched?

Stitched buffs have multiple concentric rows of stitching which stiffens the buff.  Generally, stitched buffs are used for cutting compounds (such as Tripoli) on soft metals.  On harder metals like platinum, palladium, steel and stainless steel, Stitched Buffs are used for both cutting compounds and polishing compounds such as rouge.

Loose buffs are much softer and more flexible, follow contours easily, and are generally used for final polishing with rouge or other high-shine compound.
