Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads are a new take on a classic buffing pad. Lake Country’s flat 6.5 inch foam pads set the standard for dual action buffing pads. Now they’re available in these smaller, slimmer 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch pads. These pads have the flat, full contact work surface plus a curved edge.
A lot of you have told us that you prefer the smaller 5 1/2 inch pads when polishing with the Porter Cable 7424 or 7424XP, especially since automakers are moving towards harder paint. The small pad feels lighter and less cumbersome for a dual action polisher than the thicker 6.5 inch pads. You can work more efficiently to get the results you want.
The difference between these pads and the 6.5 inch pads, besides the size, is the shape. The Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads have a beveled edge, more like the 4 inch foam pads. The beveled edge enables you tilt the polisher slightly to cut in close to mirrors or emblems without digging a sharp edge of foam into the paint. Do you see those vehicles on the road with buffer marks down the side? That can happen when you inadvertently put more pressure on one side of the pad. That won’t happen with Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads because there’s no real “edge”. You’re getting faster, more efficient pads with an added safety feature when you buy Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads.
The pads come in the five varieties you’re familiar with: yellow cutting, orange light cutting, white polishing, black finishing, and blue finessing foam. Buy them individually or in 3 packs. Save even more when you buy the do-it-yourself 6 pack; you choose 6 pads for one low price.
