No sealing, just took them to 320 grit on the lathe, burnished with chips and hit the buffer. I have been wanting to get some Tung oil for the larger outdoor ones I have made, now I have another reason for it.

Try sealing them first Bob. You'll be amazed at how much the grain will pop and how much more the piece will shine.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Beall's instructions seem helpful regarding cleaning the wheel.

I've cleaned my cloth buffing wheels with an old screwdriver. I hold the screwdriver like I'm trying to polish the tip. I've never been able to get all the black out, but got them clean enough not to transfer any thing.
This is what I do, and it works relatively well.

Don't know about the screwdriver but the sandpaper took all of the black off the wheel with little damage to the buff itself. Just polished out a pure white maple piece without any transfer whatsoever.
