FLEX PE 8-4 80 Backing Plates

Click image to see larger view

The FLEX PE 8-4 80 Rotary Machine Polisher is a fantastic little tool for intricate polishing duties, but to get the best out of it you really need to invest in a set of FLEX PE 8-4 80 Backing Plates to go with it. These backing plates facilitate the use of much smaller polishing pads than normal (down to 40 mm), and can also be used in conjunction with extension bars in cases where additional reach is needed. We really rate the novel sizing on offer (down to 32 mm from the usual lower limit of 70 mm for rotary backing plates) as it opens up many new possibilities in terms of what surfaces can be safely polished by machine. Highly recommended!
FLEX PE 8-4 80 Backing Plates are constructed from impact resistant nylon bonded to a thick layer of soft polyurethane foam, and facilitate the use of much smaller pads than normal for intricate polishing tasks. Although designed specifically for use with the FLEX PE 8-4 80 Rotary Machine Polisher, they also fit other M14 threaded rotary polishers such as the FLEX PE 14-2 150. The flexible design allows for easy transitioning on strongly curved surfaces, while the hook and loop fastening material enables quick and easy pad exchanges. FLEX PE 8-4 80 Backing Plates are currently available in three sizes.
General usage notes: (i) always switch off your machine at the mains before fitting or removing a backing plate; (ii) always ensure that you tighten the backing plate sufficiently, but without over tightening it a half turn after it first pinches tight on the spindle is usually sufficient for safe and effective use, and; (iii) always use an appropriate sized backing plate for the pad you are using the pad should always protrude past the edge of the backing plate, never the other way around.
