The Buffing Wheel Rake includes handle and rake filler. Used to pull out extra compound, clean the buff and remove any hardened or "burnt" compound to provide a fresh surface.
Also recommended to use on a brand new buffing wheel to increase the loading capacity of the buffing wheel in holding compound. The rakes last a very long time and sometimes just the metal filler may be the only part needing replacement.
Of course, we suggest user error on the side of caution when performing the cleaning duties. Keep the Buffing Wheel Rake held securely, preferably by ones foot firmly on the rake, pinned to the ground.
