Buffing Question

>I purchased the Beall Buffing System about a month ago and I buff turned items on the lathe. I've noticed that there seems to be a lot of static electricity buildup when I buff items on the lathe - so much that I get a shock when I touch the lathe after the buffing wheel has stopped. Have others observed this? Also, is this harmful to the motor/inverter on my lathe?
