I've been interchanging grinding wheels, wire wheels and buffers on my bench 
grinder for years now.  The biggest problem that I've run into with using the 
buffing wheels on a grinder is the motor speed.  Most grinders run about twice 
as fast as you'd like for buffing.  This means you have to be really careful 
while you're buffing so that you don't burn through the finish of whatever 
your're buffing.  Other than that, the long spindle on the buffers can be 
really nice for large (or contorted) parts, as you mentioned.
