    Felixthecat:
    Are you talking about this?:

    STILL no release date! Makes me wonder IF it really is coming or what kind of "problems" LC Power Tools (the company that is making this polisher) may have encountered during testing or manufacturing.

    It is interesting, however, with the different throws should come different counter weights to balance the machine properly. I wonder how their technology is handling that.

    Good point.
    Maybe the variable-stroke polisher is akin to a perpetual motion machine: it just cannot be done. Many have tried, and yes, there are US-registered patents for some of them. Then again, I never thought I would see a variable-compression internal combustion engine, but that is a reality thanks to the engineering genius of Nissan/Infinity!

    Maybe it`s like the v1.0 PCs, where different counterweights make little, if any, functional difference.

    With any foam pad wet with product weighing so much more than a single sheet of sandpaper, I found that it simply doesn`t matter (well...to me) which weight I pair with which size plate/pads on my PCs. Although the 3" one was a bit happier with the 5" counterweight if I were splitting hairs.
