Backing Plates Help
|Unlike cheaper versions, these backing plates won’t transfer heat, hence no ventilation holes. Your pad will not get hot. The plate screws directly into your buffer, and the appropriate pad aligns with the circumference of the plate and locks itself into place with thousands of hooks-and-eyes.
For dual action buffers, we also offer an elite, German-style flexible backing plate(LC-43125) constructed of molded urethane made by Lake Country Mfg. We also offer other molded flexible backing plates(These come in the standard 3.5 inch, 5 inch and 6 inch sized plates — but these are anything but standard! The best automotive companies abroad use just these. They hold the reputation of being the best of the best. The urethane is a superior material yet, the plate itself is reinforced in the center with steel supports. Edges of the plate are beveled for your car’s safety and for easy removal of the pads.
If you have a high speed polisher like the makita or dewalt, the rotary backing plates should fit your polisher as long as it has a 5/8 inch in diameter shaft. See owners manual of your polisher to check shaft size.
