Source for dental lathe buffing supplies
Some years ago I ordered buffing supplies regularly for my Baldor 3/4 horse buffer from Chas. LaHommedieu Co. I think it was located in Chicago or somewhere in the Northeast. Is it still in business and what's a phone #?
I now have a 1/2 horse Baldor dental buffer with a tapered spindle and I need buffs and compounds for this machine. I'm looking for a good supplier.
I had a rubber expanding wheel from Eastwood Co. that I used on the 3/4 horse machine--is there anything similar, perhaps a bit smaller that I could use with the 1/2 horse machine? The bigger machine had 3/4" shafts--the Eastwood expanding wheel just seems like it would be too much for the smaller machine. I'd appreciate any help.Dan Smith

Chas. F. L'Hommedieu was indeed on Ogden Ave. in Chicago. I always hesitate to say a company is not in business when I don't know it for a fact, but suffice it to say I haven't heard much about them lately and will be happy to announce otherwise if I am corrected.
Although Jackson Lea has some very heavy-duty buffs and equipment to serve industry, they may have smaller stuff as well.
