Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

I went out in the shop to get the nut and take a pic for you but when i got in the drawer i realized i had lost it. What i used as a work arround was a nut like in the link that came off a cheepie harbor freight 4" grinder that has the same 5/8x11 thread. From my research it looks like we have old school tools and should upgrade everything from threaded shaft If you can make that spanner nut work the whole grinder from HF is less than $20 and when your done buffing you'll have a handy grinder to use.

Miscellaneous Hand Tools - Titan 22511 5/8 x 11 Flange Nut and Wrench Set

EDIT: looking back at your backing plate picture i think this style is probably exactly what your missing.
