A professional grade wool pad for your 2 7/8 inch backing plate!
Lake Country's Twisted Wool Cutting Pad is available in a 3.5 inch diameter, perfect for a 2 7/8 inch hook & loop backing plate. This pad will restore dull, oxidized paint with your rotary polisher. This is an ideal pad for detailers who prefer a smaller pad size and are experienced with using a wool pad.
* Wool pads can transfer more heat from the polisher to the paint surface than foam pads. If you're new to machine polishing, we recommend that you start with a Porter Cable 7424XP polisher and foam pads.
Lake Country's Wool Cutting Pad is made of 100% wool twisted into hundreds of individual strands. The tight twisting allows the pad to operate at a consistent level of aggressiveness for longer periods. With a 1 inch pile, the pad will hold up to many, many uses. The pad has a diameter of 3.5 inches but the thick pile gives it an overall diameter of 8 inches. The Wool Cutting Pad is intended for severe swirls, scratches and heavy oxidation. Because this is a more aggressive pad, you'll want a compound to get the best results. Optimum Compound and Meguiars #4 Heavy Cut Cleaner are examples of paint compounds.
A note about fluffing a wool pad: Wool pads are known to cake up but it's an easy fix. With the polisher turned off, lay it down on the ground with the pad facing up. Set the speed to the lowest setting and turn it on. Hold a steel brush against the pad as it turns. The pile will fluff up in just a few seconds.
Your other option is to have 3 or 4 wool pads on hand so you can simply switch pads when one becomes caked.
To clean any wool or foam pads on your rotary polisher, use the Autogeek System 2000 Pad Washer. This unique wash system consists of a 5 gallon bucket containing 8 agitator wheels and a large fluid pump to pull water from the bottom of the bucket up to the pad. The Pad Washer uses the motion of your polisher to wash and dry foam and wool pads. Click on the icon at the bottom of the page for more information.
