The buffer in this segment handles the final sanding after the bigVideo transcript machine and edging has been completed. It’s purpose is to blend all scratch patterns made by the previous machines, making the floor ready for any stain or finish application.

The term used in this step is called screening, because it utilizes a 100 grit wire mesh screen. It does not create any noticeable sanding patterns in the way the edger and big machine sanding paper does.

Once the dust skirt goes on and the vacuum hooked up it’s ready to go. About blending scratch patterns. Here we have two faint patterns. Nearest to the wall is the edger pattern and a foot away the big machine pattern. Once the buffer is slowly worked over all areas of the job, the sanding becomes consistent and ready for any staining or finish application.
