    Re: Polishers

    If you're planning to buy 3 polishers
    Make it a long throw , a forced and a 3inch
    It's really simple, don't over complicate things.

    Makita PO5000C
    Rupes 15 mark 2( can buy a 21mm essentric for it)
    GG6 with Griot HD 3in plate

    Those are 3 smooth machines for the best bang for your buck..
    I mean you can save more $ if you get a Griot boss..but you gain some extra.l vibration(atleast the G21 does).the cure would be a 90$ Rupes Essentric to replace the factory Griot one...which I think would put you past the mark 2 price point.

    My reasonig for this recommendation is that if you purchase the Mille their is no reason to buy a 15/21 MKII since the Mille fits the bill. The Duetto is light weight and super ergonomic. My two start with polishers are the Duetto and Mini. When I do a test spot I start with the Duetto. I don't own a Mille or a 3401 but I'm also not going to do boats or trailers.

    I have the G21 and two GG6's in addition to my Rupes. I use the G21 over my Rupes 15 but still go with the other combo I mentioned first. The GG6 is nice but if money is not a concern I'll take the Duetto all day long.
