Situp Polisher Attachment kit
The Situp Polisher Attachment when fitted to a 180mm variable speed polisher (Hitachi or Makita) will produce excellent, flat, polished edges. These will blend into the main floor perfectly with much less effort compared to polishing on hands and knees and much better balance of the resin pad or Easy Edge wheels.
It will also polish small floors although the first two metal bond cuts should be done with a 230mm angle grinder or the Situp Grinder because polishers do not have the speed or muscle for this work.
An exception is the Tearitoff metal bond wheels which may be used with the Situp Polisher on low speed to machine-grout floors. Easy Edge ceramic bond wheels are also a perfect match for the Situp Polisher to remove tool marks which is essential for a perfectly flat finish on the floor. This flat finish is essential before using resin bond ring pads or before sealing with a urethane or acrylic coating.
What you get in the Situp Polisher Attachment kit
Not supplied is the 180mm variable speed polisher, weights which are available at sporting goods stores, and the chair which is any type of standard office chair with a five-castor base. We recommend purchasing a 5kg weight, a 2.5kg and a 1.25kg weight which are standard bar weights with a 30mm centre hole.
The Situp Polisher Attachment kit is easy to assemble and very robust in construction, it is inexpensive and will save you hours on jobs compared to other methods.
The 178mm ring pad diamond resins are used for polishing up to 800 grit. For higher grits it may be necessary to use the Situp Polisher in the kneeling position holding the front below the weights and operating the trigger switch of the grinder as normal because of the strong torque forces with 1500 and 3000 grit pads. Full speed and weights can be used to increase productivity for 50, 100 & 200 grit pads. Lower the speed by 50% for 400 grit and more for 800 grit pads while reducing the weight to 1.25kg.
This tool will enable much faster hand polishing of edges and small rooms with better quality results.
