One thing I didn't mention in the online clinic in regards to buffing safety is to be sure that you have the on/off switch for your buffing machine within reach in case of a problem.

On a small motor, you could use a foot switch as on a bench motor, but on a larger machine there needs to be a power cut off that can be reached in the event that you get "reeled in" by the shaft.

Thanks & be safe,

Many, many years ago, when the owner of the store we worked at had his young teen-age son back at the buffing wheel, we had warned him several times about approaching the wheel while not having his apron securely tied in the back. But, being a very intelligent teen-ager, he ignored our advice. Imagine his surprise when one day the wheel caught his apron and almost took his nose off. Luckily the neckstrap broke before his face hit the buffer. Gee, he always remembered to tie his apron after that! He is almost 50 years old now, and a lot smarter.
