    I never liked gear driven polishers.

    I had never been a fan of gear driven polishers. They tired me out and I felt they wrestled with me the entire time I used them.

    All that changed when I used my Rupes Mille for the first time!!

    We used them on a Douglas VC-9C used as Air Force One and a WWII B-17 bomber we polished up.

    Rather than fighting me for control, as I felt other machines had, the Mille joined me as an ally. It has a very robust but very manageable action to it. The throw is a short one but the correction ability is excellent. It is a swirl eating monster!!

    Every time I start complaining about the surface area on my truck, I think of Joe doing an entire plane! Lol

    Awesome work, Joe. (Again!)
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Joe how does it compare to the Makita 5000C? I own 2 Makita 5000’s and find it very powerful in gear driven mode but takes the right combination of technique and pad/product to smooth it out.
