White Oak or Red Oak?


Most floor finishers use a buffer with a fine screen to even out the sanding---then again to buff out boogers between coats---

I've heard of the buffing between coats of poly, but only using a hand screen. Everyone I talked to recommended not putting a heavy buffer on a fresh poly'd floor because of the fear of track marks from the wheels.

The wheels on a floor buffer are only used for transport--they do not touch the floor when the buffer is in use---

I'm not a finisher---but I have had plenty of wood floors finished in the course of my work---all of them buffed after sanding---then again to remove bubbles and dust before the last coat--

Gotcha, I know the exact machine you're talking about. That's definitely an option. The floor isn't that big, a hand screener on a pole is probably what I'll use to just to level out the boogers between coats.

That will work----no need to spend 3 hours travel to rent a tool for a 1 hour job---
