    Re: The Air Test - Using NON RUPES pads on RUPES Polishers by Mike Phillips

    I show the Air Test at all my classes.

    It's one thing to read this article or learn this from someone that learned it from this article.

    It's another thing to experience it yourself.


    From the 2019 Denver, Colorado Roadshow Class

    Pictures: Colorado Roadshow Class- Denver Auto Shield


    Before starting the RUPES Detailing Academy Class I explained to the class that RUPES is NOT a tool, it's a SYSTEM. This involved the tools, the pads and their products.

    Here's one of my articles talks about how and why RUPES is a system, not a tool.

    The Air Test - Using NON RUPES pads on RUPES Polishers by Mike Phillips



    And at ALL my classes I demonstrate what I talk about in the above article by having the students experience the vibration in the tool with no pad and then how SMOOTH to tool gets WITH a RUPES pad attached.


    First everyone holds the tool on the 6 speed setting in the air - (The Air Test)

    Of course it's best done without gloves on but this was a SUPER SAFE class.





    When holding the RUPES BigFoot 21 or the 15 in the air with the tool set to high speed WITHOUT a pad, you can easily feel the tool vibrating.





    And then they hold the tool in the air with a matching RUPES pad.





    When holding the RUPES BigFoot 21 or the 15 in the air with the tool set to high speed WITH a RUPES matching pad --- it's a smooth as can be!






    And after experiencing first-hand how important it and what a huge factor it is to use pads that are MATCHED to the backing plate and the tool, well.... I'm vindicated yet again.

    I actually share the RUPES Air Test in all my classes.

    I make everyone feel the difference in vibration with the BigFoot 21 and 15 polishers using RUPES pads and non-RUPES pads.
