    Re: New model g21 backing plate failure

    I found it to have to much vibration also, and have not used it till this week. Out of the blue I received another backing plate from Griots. I tried it again and after a few panels my hands were tingling.
    I tried it with lc hdo and force hybrids.
    I am debating if I should try some griots pads or send it back and get a rupes.
    I really wanted to like it, because their customer service is excellent and they seem like nice people.

    Did you use the matching bolt? My G15 is butter smooth.

    Re: New model g21 backing plate failure

    I have the newest version of the G15 as well and it too is very smooth when using both Thin Pro and Flat pads from Lake Country. Love the tool. Powerful, great ergonomics, and I can work so much faster than I could with my older short-through DA.

    Also Makita PO over the 3401
    3401 over the xce
    I never got back to ask you about the makita, why do you prefer it over flex?

    I am debating on sending it back or ordering some griots pads. On another note, my flex did this:
