    Re: Review: Rupes Bigfoot Nano iBrid Polisher

    That was one of the best reviews I have ever read. I believe you have talked me into getting the Nano short neck. I think I will get more use out of the short neck version. Looks like it is balanced more than the long neck version and should be easier to control. Time to cash in my Autopia points and gift certificates!

    Thanks a lot for that compliment rlmccarty2000! I appreciate it.

    For my use, I think I`ll be happy with the short neck and I`m glad I picked it.

    The short neck being easier to control is just my opinion as I have not used the long neck version... I had a few times where the foam pad would tilt and I had to adjust my technique to keep the foam pad flat. As I said in my review, I think this is an unintentional torquing motion resulting from the force of your hand/thumb depressing the power trigger button.

    What does a person do when he can`t remove an extremely tight a$$ bolt? He increases his torque by increasing the length of his rachet either by changing to a longer breaker bar or adding a pipe to the short rachet. The result is increased leverage.



    Here`s a good illustration for those who like to see an equation:



    As you can see, the torque is directly proportional to the distance between the pivot point (foam pad in this case) and where you`re applying the force (power trigger and thumb in this case). So the long neck version of the Nano increases the distance between the two points resulting in more torque.

    A person may say he will never tilt the foam pad while polishing. Trust me, it`s easier said than done LOL!

    I added the pictures and equations depicting what I mean with the torque to my original post.

    Or, get a torch (add heat) to soften and/or expand the metal so less force/torque is needed.

    But, most will agree heat is detrimental in polishing paint.

    ...Unless your the guy that thinks you can get paint hot and "re-flow" it with your rotary and 8" wool pad.

    Great review!

    Marc I have used this writeup several times for my own reference.

    You absolutely killed it.

    I blabbed on with numerous posts when I first got my nano.

    Once I read yours I`ll have to admit I was thinking, now that`s what I meant to do, lol.

    I`m thinking about using the brushes inside my car today.

    I recently got the soft nylon one that they are now selling.

    Thank you so much Brandt! Means a lot man!

    I`m curious how you like the soft nylon brushes - been eyeing on those for a while now.
