    Re: Polisher machines

    25 mm with a 5in has a very similar pad ghosting as a 21/6un combo
    25/6in Ghosting is bad.
    Been using the 25/5 combo since like 2018/2019 whichever the debut was

    Really liking this like 3in...

  3. Re: Flex vs. Rupes Gear Driven Orbital Polishers

    I've owned all 4

    Re: Polisher machines

    Refract on Australia has the forced mini,
    Best route is buying a downstepper machine..(speed controller works)
    If you just swap to a USA plug, it'll run, but speed controller sadly doesnt work....
  7. Poll: Re: FLEX XC3401 vs any of the new long stroke polishers???

    Time Warp!!!

    Then and now I still prefer my long throw.
    Currently use a 25mm with a 5in BP and a 25gram pad to get it to run its smoothest.
    With Makita PO5000C and even the MILLE, im more...

    If you market correctly you can create a market for anything.
    Make them see the value of your work, and they'll be bought in your service.

    Polisher machines

    I haven't been on here in years, mainly due to FB groups..
    But curious if I'm the only one still using a 25mm longthrow?
    I also discovered a 3in forced mini that I'll have my hands on soon!

    I think griots is handling it better than flex with their xce/xfe7-15 BP issues

    Re: Which 15mm polisher to buy?

    If you don't want to wait, theirs plenty of other brand options,

    Just repack the grease with quality heavy duty bearing grease and use proper 12 or 10 guage extension cord..good to go

    It does, as do pad weights...
    You can compensate with a different weight pad if it did infact induce imbalance

    Re: Old wax!

    If you want to chemically strip with no abraisives you'll need the following steps.

    Acid ( like a water spot remover)
    Alkaline( like an APC)
    Solvent( like any panel prep)

    On that order

    Re: Which 15mm polisher to buy?

    Go with a 21mm
    Faster correction
    More coverage
    Stalls less
    Slap a 5in BP on it, get a tad more correction

    Where the 21mm won't fit, nor would the 15mm..so get yourself a 3in for those...
  21. Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Old Griot boss plates won't work though, needs the updated mark II style like makitas
  22. Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Yes it's for machine Cooling, I'm just not sure how much the fan actually cools vs a regular vented plate...
    neither has the shroud sealed by the plate like a factory Rupes... I'm just assuming...

    Re: New model g21 backing plate failure

    It uses the newer Rupes style plate oblong vs round
    I'll check again and see if Makita plate is newer style or old
  24. Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Just switch out your pads more often
    l typically do every panel or two anyways

    If the machine get unusablly hot due to a backing plate, then Griot dropped the ball on design and should of did...
  25. Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Simple fix, just go back to the old backing plate..or get a Makita PO5000C plate
    Hopefully the LC UDOS plate doesn't have the same outcome
