    OPM speed settings for the DA polisher?

    Does any know the OPM speed settings of these three DA polishers?
    I'm really looking for the speeds 3800 and 4800 to use D300 and D301


    Meguiar's G110V2

    Griot's Garage 6"

    Re: OPM speed settings for the DA polisher?

    Here's G110v2:


    • Speed Setting 1 - 1800 opm
    • Speed Setting 2 - 2800 opm
    • Speed Setting 3 - 3800 opm
    • Speed Setting 4 - 4800 opm
    • Speed Setting 5 - 5800 opm
    • Speed Setting 6 - 6800 opm

    I don't have manuals for neither Porter Cable nor Griot's Garage tools. On their web pages only ranges are listed: 2,500 - 6,800 opm:

    http://www.portercable.com/Products/...roductID=21436

    http://www.griotsgarage.com/product/...dom+orbital.do

    Probably speed 4 for D300 and speed 3 for D301 would be still accurate.

    +1

    and maybe we could add Flex XC 3401 VRG DA as well.

    Setting 1 - 160 rpm (3,200 opm),
    Setting 2 - 200 rpm (4,000 opm),
    Setting 3 - 270 rpm (5,600 opm),
    Setting 4 - 330 rpm (6,600 opm),
    Setting 5 - 400 rpm (8,000 opm),
    Setting 6 - 480 rpm (9,600 opm).

    Do the OPM's change for each of the settings for the first generation PC 7424? Thank you.

    I got my answer from CSR at Griot's

    1: 3,500 OPM, 2: 4,800 OPM, 3: 6,100 OPM 4: 7,400 5: 8,700 OPM 6: 10,000 OPM. These speeds are all approximate and depend on how much force is applied to the pad while the machine is orbiting.

    Sounds like the very low settings are needed to stay within MF DA specs
