    Re: Rupes LHR15ES stopped working

    Couple of odd things going on here that need clarification -

    1) That is an orange trigger tool, so it couldn't only be "a couple" (I take that to mean 2) years old. The last of the orange...

    Re: IBrid- Cool factor of 10

    Bingo. The 3mm attachment is designed primarily for sanding purposes (with the PSA plate and P2000/P3000 daisy discs). I've also used it with the brushes for slightly less aggressive cleaning where...

    Re: Devil tuning.? Any thoughts

    Effectively defeats the purpose (on the mini specifically) of the design. If you notice the tool has almost no overhang, thats so you can work right up to the edges of surfaces that have a...

    Re: Rupes LHR 21ES Bigfoot vs LHR21 MarkII

    Re: Rupes mark ii 15 stalling badly

    Answer is going to be pretty much the same as above - hard to say. Neither will stall on a flat surface, it would be entirely dependent on the degree of the curve or protrusion causing the stall,...

    Re: Rupes mark ii 15 stalling badly

    Hard question to answer without seeing it in person - will depend entirely on the depth of the curve or protrusion thats causing a rotation stall, your technique, etc.

    Re: New Rupes Micro Fiber pad fly off

    All of our plates are manufactured in Milan in the same factory, same batches, and literally thousands at the same time, so there wouldn't be any variance in location. A plate in Europe would be the...

    Really depends - the nano is going to be far more versatile, but costs far more. You can still get a lot done with the LHR75E mini so it comes down to budget and how crazy you want to get about...

    Re: Rupes 500 ml Bottles Phased Out?

    Yep... 500ml proved to be an unpopular size and was discontinued. We have the 250ml and 1 liter and with the launch of the nano 150ml, which is perfect if you only need a small amount.

    Re: New Rupes Micro Fiber pad fly off

    There are only a few ways to reduce the grip of a backing plate like this:

    In both situations its "as needed".

    The plates will last varying amounts of time depending on how they're used. Some people are really hard on them and can kill a plate inside a year, others go...
