    2 Are both size backing plates in stock at AG the newer updated versions with the locking tabs?


    Thank you

    Jim

    I'll be into the office after lunch to shoot the Live Broadcast video with Yancy and can check.

    Re: Supa BEAST backing plate swap



    From time to time I see someone ask,

    1: Does the felt ring on the Supa BEAST need to be lubricated?

    2: Will the BEAST backing plate fit on the Supa BEAST or the CBEAST?

    The answer is no to both questions. The Supa BEAST and the CBEAST use a totally different design that enables the tool to run,

    Cooler
    Smoother
    Quieter
    And weigh less


    See my article from 2011 on this topic as you can see by the pictures, the innards in the BEAST look nothing like the innards of the Supa BEAST or the CBEAST.
