Flexible Backing Plate for Dual Action Polishers
Lake Country puts forth a lot of effort in manufacturing and fabricating quality backing plates just as they do with their foam pads. Its crucial that a backing plate spins true! If it is not symmetrical and wobbles as slow speeds it becomes more than just an annoyance at higher speeds.
When polishing with a machine its always wise to leave a margin between edge of pad and edge of backing plate. When polishing up to an edge or near perpendicular surface you must NEVER allow a spinning backing plate to come in contact with the surface. Thats why we always recommend using a pad slightly larger than the backing plate. This 5" diameter backing plate is designed for use with 5 1/2" buffing pads but depending on your level of experience and the area you are polishing it can be used with 5" up to 6" diameter pads.
