The AeroBuf is an axial drum designed for professional swirl free metal polishing. AeroBuf Drum Buffer is a solid 3D printed drum made with heavy duty, durable PETG or Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol, a thermoplastic polyester that provides significant chemical resistance, durability compared to other plastics.

Once fitted onto the shaft, screw in the bolt supplied to fix the AeroBuf onto the power tool securely. The total weight of the AeroBuff and a burnishing machine (typical type) is 4,5kg or 9lb 14oz. The drum on its own weighs 950 gramms.
