    There is talk about it costing $600-$700, at that price I’m out.

    Mary, what’s it been, a month since your last new polisher? I’m amazed at your self restraint. I definitely think you should have this.

    I think there was a post about this early this month on another forum. I haven`t purchased a unit yet, and was thinking about this one, but at $600 plus I think it`s marketed toward pros and wayyy more than I wanted to spend for a first unit.

    While we`re on the subject of new machines...How did your new Rupes 21 work out Mary?? Mine made it about 20 minutes. Well 15-20 minutes twice. Guess it needs a breather in between panels. This is the second new Rupes I`ve gotten that was bad right out of the box. I took a hit on the first one selling it on eBay after the second major repair. If they tell me they`re going to fix this machine we`re going to have problems!

    Sorry, looked l

    What kind of reply have you had from Rupes? I’ve never had a machine problem (and two of mine are demos), but I had a problem with some pads and their response was very quick.

    I`m still trying with the Rupes MKll 21, think it runs me, more than I run it !
    Like the length and the 6" pads, will be perfect for the larger areas that I bought it for.

    Now, the Boss 21.. Bold, tough, accurate, doesn`t easily stall.
    Was a joy to run right out of the box.
    A bit heavier then the Rupes 21 I think.

    Re: Lake Country has a new tool

    After I polish for a while I get desensitized to the feel, so I want an OLED or LCD display that shows me how I have the polisher positioned relative to the surface at the center of the pad. I imagine a large plus sign with tick marks as the base graph with a superimposed indicator showing my angle.

    And if it`s easy for the manufacturer to produce this, I`d also like to see how much pressure I`m applying as well as orbits per minute.

    At $600-plus I believe this is doable.

    No display is needed, just polish enough paint and you’ll get the technique down.

    Soft-start or "full-on from the jump"?
