Small buff pad?

Hello I am buffing out the area on the roof where the rain catch or (gutter) runs all the way around the top. It has a channel that is around a 1/4" to 1/2" wide and deep. Something in the shape of a cut off wheel would work only as a buff wheel. Is there something in a hardware store I could get for this to use in the die grinder or hand drill?

I would try a cheap white foam pad that you can fit onto a drill. The soft foam will conform to the shape of the railing, but may chew up the pad. It's less than $10, so it's not a severe loss if it chews up the sides. I also use these with PlastX for headlights.

Small buffer/polisher

Go to and look at the Astro Pneumatic 3 inch kit for $59.00. I have this buffer that came in a demo kit with a Hutchins 3501 3 inch DA with the 1.25 and 2.75 inch pads. I have not seem many places that will beat the prices at smartshoppers .com When you go to click on air tools and then on Astro Pneumatic. Then keep going down the page until you see the kit.
