    Very cool Aaryn.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I can only imagine how many cars were perfectly swirled out with that pad.

    Thanks a Desertnate.

    I havenít the equipment to measure that but it doesnít appear much louder than many other tools. Iíll see if I can make a video comparison, that may give some idea.

    Thank you Paul A.

    Yeah me too. I like seeing the patina on them too, it tells a story. Haha, yeah I think the wool pad is definitely of the same era. The T handle thingie is for changing the backing plate.

    Thanks Kassel Act.

    I shall weigh it & get back to you on that one. Itís definitely heavier but not a lot heavier than my RUPES RULH22EN. It feels nice in hand but perhaps buffing out a whole car could turn into a workout.

    Thank you UncleDavy.

    Yeah sad how that happens huh. I will have a look at that today & see if I have something thatíll fit.

    Awesome! Youíre gonna have to share some pictures of it. Nice - VWís are my passion too.

    Hey Tony.

    Indeed it does mate. I have a video of it in action, kinda a comparison clip for reference to the noise of it compared to a Flex 3401 - isnít too noisy at all & I always wear ear protection/headphones anyway so noise doesnít bother me. Can see it on our Facebook page if anyone wants to - Ange N Aaryn Nicholson | Facebook - video clip is the last picture/video on that post.


    Sorry about that mate - cleared Inbox now.

    Couldn't find it Aaryn?


    Upload the video to your business Facebook page as a "stand alone" video. Then it will show up in your video folder. One there, you can click on the video and get the URL address. Get the URL address and then copy and paste into a message here and enclose it in the video tags.

    Looks like this

    Video URL goes here



    Look at the picture below. Look for where I typed,

    You can also click on this button and follow the line I drew using that awesome software Microsoft Paint


    And then copy and paste the URL address into the dialog box that pops up.


    Notice I'm typing in Code View and then taking a screenshot before posting this reply.
