Subject:
Buffing techniques?

Bert Workman
>Yesterday I picked up a 4" bowl buff and a bar of carnauba wax. My intention is to shine up various projects for display at the county fair. I mounted the buff on the lathe and stood there looking at for 5 minutes before I realized I had no idea what I was doing.

Do I apply the wax to the spinning buff and then hold the bowl to the buff? Or do I rub the bowl with the wax then buff? How much wax do I use?

TIA for any insight. I guess I should just start playing around and see what happens.
