    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

    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...

  10. 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...

    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
  12. 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...
  13. 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

  16. Re: I have a 5" backing plate on my DA can I use a 6"foam pad?

    No because the 6in pad would have a 6.5 face
    .
    You'd have a 1in overhang on the Velcro side and an 1.5in overhang on the face side

    That combo would lead to

    Inconsistent cut/finish...
