    Re: Just SONAX Cut Max with a wool pad on a FLEX 3401 - 1940 Pontiac 5-Window Coupe

    Mike, have you had any occurances of the wool fibers getting bound up in the center hole?

    I did some testing with a Meguiar's W4000 wool pad on the 3401, and it started to melt the hooks of the plate around the hole, as well as the loop material. It got really hot in there. If I had to do it over again, I'd cut the offending fibers out of the pad. I may get this chance as my "new to me" 3401 is an route from Cali from a friend. It will be here Wednesday. Kind of excited to have it back in the arsenal!

    You know it, man!

    Big mistake. Huge.

    I mentioned elsewhere that I did so many huge vehicles last summer, that the 3401 would have really helped with. I had to rotary cut, and follow with the PC. If I had the 3401, it would have been all I needed.

    I distinctly doing an AIO (when I had my first 3401) to a mid sized sedan, and it only took something like 45 minutes to machine, and that was with doing a good amount of swirl removal.

    So now I have to admit to being very happy to have one back in the stable. I need to either tighten or replace the cord, but after that I'll enjoy some forced rotation muscle getting me home in less time.

    Let me get back to you when I’m behind a keyboard- I hate typing with my index finger on my cell phone.
