    rupes blue pad & zephir is amazing to compound ceramics... cuts and finishes down alot better than you would think.


    both these details were 2 stages only -

      damn you matty. more research to do now
      The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

        VK55 - I can personally assure you and many if not all who's got one will attest the Flex VRG is truly superb machine. I can't fault it honestly. Build quality is uncompromised and can run all day long and won't miss a beat.

        The reason I'm getting a big foot (won't acronymise to BF as it's usually reserved for other purposes...and I'm not a Beiber fan) is to help speed through the bigger panels.
        I certainly prefer my Flex over the Festool, it's easy to hold it where ever you want on the body. The only reason I'd buy a Festool is if I was left handed (speed dial position).

        The Bigfoot is quick over the panels! Just have to wait for some MF pads for mine, then I'll be truly happy with it!

            I'm going to get a 5" backing plate for mine to try, could be best of both worlds?

                thats what I'm hoping for!

                I tried a 5" MF with UC on mine carefully, it worked extremely well. As good as I could ever get it with my G220 DA, maybe even better finish, but only took about 1/3 of the time I recon.

                  Nice Buy Matty,next time your driving past Bunnings slip in and grab an M8 machine washer and you will find those correction times will come down even further

                    Ahh great! Someone that's done the washer mod! Cheers Jason!

                    Yes, there's a lot of friction between the backing plate and the rubber surround!

                            @Matty - Interesting to see you've changed your mind after stating in an earlier thread that you weren't keen on spending this kind of money after initially trying the R21. Can I ask why the change of mind...?

                              Still not keen on the retail price, but I got a cheap supplier!

                              I got the shits with my G220 DA taking too long, so I just ordered the damn thing! I like to use the DA with MF pads for polishing instead of the rotary, and was always going to upgrade it, so just bit the bullet.

                              Still getting used to it, did a blue M135i today with it, and it's impressively quick!

                                Out of curiosity, has anyone considered just having one sent over from the US? They go for $200 or so cheaper, so with postage you would still come out about $150 ahead?
