The 110 volt Hardin 3/16 inch radius shaping and polishing profile package is the ideal combination of tools used to produce a 3/16 radius decorative edge on tile, granite and concrete counter tops and other natural stone and hard surfaces. This kit includes a Hardin 4 inch variable speed wet polisher, 3/16 radius diamond profile wheel and a complete set of 4 inch premium diamond polishing pads. The polishing pad set includes 1 each; 50, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1500, and a 3000 grit polishing pad. This set also includes the rubber backer pad needed to attach the diamond pads to the polisher. This kit includes a 3/16 inch radius vacuum brazed diamond profile wheel. This vacuum brazed profile wheel is designed to produce a 3/16 inch radius on natural or engineered stone and concrete. Very simple to use, the wheel screws directly on this tool. A guide on the top of the bit rides on the surface of the stone and a lower bearing controls the depth of cut for consistent shaping. The profile wheel is only capable of removing material in the controlled 3/16 inch area, this makes user error or damaging the material virtually impossible. To use the system simply screw the bit on to the grinder, turn on the water then the grinder, set the top guide bearing onto the top edge of the material and apply some force parallel, into the edge of the working surface. Move the bit forward and back until the bit has ground the shape completely, it's that simple. Our profile wheels feature an internal water feed for optimum cooling of the bit, this allows for maximum linear grinding distance. After you shape the edge, attach the included hook and loop backing pad to the grinder and start the polishing process with the 100 grit pad (50 grit is included however it is very aggressive and should be used with caution). Continue polishing with each grit included with this kit ending with the 3,000 grit polishing pad and the factory shine can be achieved.
A 3/16 profile wheel is great for rounding sharp edges. If you desire to create a full 1/4 round edge on standard stone tile, use the 3/8 inch radius kit. The 3/8 Inch radius kit will shape the entire edge of the tile into a 1/4 round circle, removing all flatness.
