Hello guys,

Anyone here using 6" or 6.5" on their rotary? The reaseon I asked, I have few of them that I left behind when I was still using the PC to polish. I dont want to trash them out, so I was wondering if I can use the 6.5" or 6" pads on my rotary? And yes, I already bought the 5" bp, just incase :D

I use them most of the time. It's a rare occasion that I pull out the 8" ones. The 6's are easier to control and a bit safer.

Of course you can! :) In fact, many prefer using the 6.5" with the rotary as they allow you to get the pad into tighter areas and around odd shapes and contours. :)

Hey,

I did spot the other day a backing plate and a tiny pad, around 3"!!! I am not sure what brand it was. I may have to take a second look at it! :)

3" pads and backing plates are sold on Auto Detailing Supplies. I plan to get some for my Makita rotary for those "really" tight places.
