Eastwood 1/2 HP Buff Motor is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buffer/ Must Buy After doing some research I decided to buy this 1/2 HP Eastwood buffer. The best thing I ever bought. If you don't have to buff huge parts this 1/2 HP motor will do the work easily. I bought the motor and the 8" buffing wheel kit. I had to buy the buffing rake separated because it does not come with the 8" buff wheels kit. If you are going to buff small parts buy the motor with 6" buffing kit. The price is good and the final work is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood 1/2 HP Buff Motor Received this motor in perfect condition, packed very well. So happy I purchased the Eastwood motor; high quality, powerful, runs smooth and is barely warm after extended use. Love the long shafts; able to buff larger pieces of metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This buffer has done everything I need it to do... Definitely recommend buying the kit with stand, assorted buffing wheels and polishing compounds... Well worth the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buffer, Great Company I restore antique fans and telephones. I had been using a Delta bench grinder that I converted into a polisher. It worked okay, but there wasn't enough clearance between the wheels and the motor. The HP was a little weak also (1/5 hp). I researched for awhile on the different buffers out there and finally settled on the 1/2 HP Eastwood Brand. First, I liked that they had a video showing the product and the site has a lot of information on buffing correctly. The 6" buffing kit was a real $$ saver also. The first thing I polished with the machine was a brass blade from an old GE fan. I had done one before with the delta and it had come out pretty good. I used the recommended wheels and compounds and the blades came out INCREDIBLE!! The machine had more than enough power and the job was amazing. The clearance between the wheels and the motor was more than enough. All brass pieces of the fan came out like a mirror. Extremely happy with the buffer. I also like the Eastwood company. I had to call their customer service about something and they handled my order very courteously. I will definitely do business with them again.

I need a buffing machine with a 1/2 inch shaft, does the 1/2 hp come with a 1/2 inch arbor?

Asked by: jerseyjim
Yes. This machine does have the half inch shaft that is perfect to use with 6"-8" buffs.
