Thread: Lake country forced rotation 5.5

  1. #1

    Default Lake country forced rotation 5.5

    Got some lake country pads. 5.5 and 3.5
    3.5 are great. 5.5 I'm sure are great also but I cant use them. They are so out of round/center hole, my rotary shakes like I was trying to work the cream up in concrete.
    Not sure how to approach this as it was a Ebay purchase. Reach out to lake?

    Anybody have this issue?

    Thanks

    I've been using a Makita forced rotation and haven't had any problems. Are you sure the pad is centered properly?
    The forced rotation polishers do tend to shake a little more but you could give Lake Country a call to see what they say.
    My biggest complaint is that they rotate in the opposite direction of the standard buffers and take some getting used to.

    I'm using a makita rotary. The std style. When I use the center hole for alignment it's way off. 3/8 to 1/2 inch. When I center it by hand, aligning backing plate to velcro, it's still noticeably off and looking up in center hole I can see how far off it is.

    Guess im not too upset as I love my new max shine m550 and sense I'm not in a huge hurry to finish, dont/wouldn't mind just using that w a 3.5 pad.

    Am i supposed to be using the forced rotation buffer with this pad?

    Thanks len.

    Even if you were using a forced rotation machine the pad should be even all around the hole. Sounds like you have a pad that should be returned.
