Morning Session ***Multiple-Step or Show Car Detailing***

Short Stroke Polishers
Short stroke polishers are considered 8mm orbit stroke length or smaller. For example, the Porter Cable is an 8mm orbit stroke length polisher and thus considered a short stroke polisher. The Griot's 3" Random Orbital Polisher is a 5mm orbit stroke length polisher and also considered a short stroke polishers.

The first short stroke free spinning random orbital polisher to mainstream was the Porter Cable 7424 and 7336 back in the early 1990s when Meguiar's introduced it to the car detailing world as an safe alternative to rotary buffers. Since then, a number of tools have been introduced that like the Porter Cable polishers, use an 8mm orbit stroke length with a free spinning spindle bearing and a counterweight to provide inertia and thus maintain pad rotation under pressure and around curved body panels.

During this class, we will be covering and using the short stroke polishers created by Griot's Garage, the Griot's Garage 6" Random Orbital Polisher and the The Griot's 3" Random Orbital Polisher.

The products used in this class will be focused and centered around to Griot's Garage line of products, tools, and accessories.
