    Re: FLEX XCE 8-125

    I own the 3401 and the cordless Beast. Overall I am very impressed with the performance, and I have moved to using it 95% of the time over my 3401 because I don't have a cord dragging around with...

    Re: Micro Polisher for Weekend Detailer

    I'd buy the Griots and adaptors that are available for it. Honestly, there are very rarely any places I use a 1" polisher when I'm working on cars. 95% of the time it's a 2 or 3" pad.

    Re: Those who experience snow.

    I've lived in North Dakota 45 years. In the winter I will drive through the occasional touchless car wash on the "deluxe" setting to get the undercarriage wash. Beyond that, if I wanted to, I have...

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

    Honestly you can't go wrong with either tool being gear driven. Both companies are well known for quality tools. You will save money with the Flex as the price is about $40 less by comparison. ...

    ONR - Optimum No Rinse wash is one that's common
  10. Re: Rupes Q-MAG nano sander adapter or nor?

    I just use the sanding discs and backing plate that came with the Nano. No sense in throwing money away.
  11. Re: All brawl with ZERO stall - FLEX Gear-Driven Polishers!

    I own the limited pink 3401 and the new cordless C-Beast.

    I also pushed my friend over the fence on the Supa Beast last month.

    Fabulous tools!

    Re: Pads for Milwaukee 7" Polisher

    Whatever pad brand you are comfortable with, go with that. Personally I'd just buy a smaller backing pad and use the pads I have.

    Re: GMC Denali Ceramic Pro coated

    Yes. I definitely earned my paycheck on this one. Fortunately it had soft paint, and the panels are all flat.

    Re: Reddish stain on paint

    Looks like residual rust staining from water dripping off of a building or a sign. Try clay first (90% of the time I have been able to remove it this way) and move on to your choice of compound and...

    Re: Flex drill

    Just an interior brush that's had the handle shaved down to fit the chuck. The torque pushes the bristles out and cleans. Great little home remedy tool.
