The Rupes LD30 30mm Air-Powered Orbital Denibber tops out at 7,500 RPM, which can stress its tiny backing plate. The 9P06.061 Hook-Face 30mm Backing Plate is a direct repacement for the factory installed unit.  Use with hook and loop (aka Velcro®) sanding rosettes & discs.
 
Technique, overall use, and the type of work being accomplished can also impact the life of the plate. Should you accidentally drop the machine (and the plate is impacted in the fall), its metal stud can bend, causing the plate to wobble something fierce. Eventually, in one way or another... the backing plate will need to be replaced.

It's a good idea to keep at least one spare on hand if you own an LD30, as they are not easy to locate in a pinch.

Where have YOU been all my life?!

If there's one thing I despise, it's an inferior backing plate.
I suppose this is why I fell head over heels for the Rupes 9P08.060!

Its stellar build quality is reminiscent of the Mirka 102GG 3" Backing Plate, but is shorter in height.  Molded polymer construction means that the yellow hub, white cushioning, and black Velcro® face are molded together (not glued), so this backing plate should last and last.  The mounting stud is 5/16"-24, so this little beauty will fit all sorts of machines.

The face of the plate is not stiff nor soft.  When used on curved surfaces, its edge conforms rather easily, but this plate would surely be a good basis for sanding things level.  The hook material is short, grabby, and long lasting.  Should the side of the plate happen to contact a delicate object, you'll be relieved to know that it is soft to the touch.  An excellent choice for use with sanding discs and buffing pads alike.

This is great addition to your backing plate arsenal.  A spacer is not included with this plate, so you'll need to install some sort of washer (an 8mm washer fits perfectly).  The washer will ensure that the rivets on top of the plate will not contact the counterbalance assembly on certain random orbital machines.

Replacement for this backing plate is the Rupes 980.027N, available here.
The Rupes LHR 15ES is quite a tool.  It delivers a 15mm ø orbit, and tops out at 4,800 RPM.  Knowing this, it's no big surprise that eventually you'll need to replace its backing plate.  Over time, the backing plate's attachment hooks can degrade or break away, causing pads and discs to fling from the machine during use!  

Surprisingly, the primary reason backing plates need to be changed is not due to wear.  The fact is, nothing can relegate a backing plate to the trash bin faster than an accidental dropping of the machine.  

Regardless of how it happens, if the machine takes a fall and crashes to the ground, there's a very high likelihood that the mounting pad (essentially a stamped steel washer) will bend.  If this happens, you'll be dead in the water unless you've got a backup plate on hand.

This backing plate is the genuine article!  A direct replacement Rupes® 980.027 125mm Backing Plate, made specifically for use with the Rupes® LHR 15ES BigFoot Random Orbital Polisher.  Also fits the LHR 21ES, allowing the machine to be outfitted with 5" (125mm) pads and discs.

Versatility and quality in one package.

 10-29-2015 NOTE:  This backing plate is being phased out.
Please consider using one of the following 3" diameter plates:

• Mirka® 913G (1/4-20 thread)
• Rupes® 990.007 (6mmx1.0 thread)
• Meguiar's® DBP3 (5/16-24 thread)
• Mirka® 102GG (5/16-24 thread
• Rupes® 9P08.060 (5/16-24 thread)


This backing plate features size 5/16-24 female thread. It is designed to be used with any of the five included adapters (see specifications below for sizes). Simply place the included washer* on the plate, then install the appropriate adapter.

Although this plate was painstakingly designed to optimize the performance of Meguiar's Unigrit™ Sanding and Foam Finishing Discs, it is an outstanding choice for use with any sanding disc or buffing pad.

The flared edge of the plate is soft and pliable, so it works well on curved or complex surfaces. The top of the plate is aluminum, and very stiff. Six holes assure thorough cleaning of the surface if used with a vacuum system.

The micro hook attachment material is ideal for use with sanding discs because the hooks will not protrude beyond the loop backing of most discs (a common cause of pigtail scratches when soft backed sanding discs are used).

*Caution- the washer must be used, as it helps to distribute applied force and pressure over a broader area.  If you do not not use the washer, there is a very good likelihood that the threads inside the plate will fail... so use it!

A chunky bruiser of a plate. Now an all-time favorite!

This backing plate is built like a tank. Its height comes in handy at times, while the added weight allows it to work well with machines designed for 5" and 6" backing plates.

Molded polymer construction means that the black hub, yellow foam center, and white face are molded together, not glued. Consequently, durability is tip-top.

The face of the plate is stiff, yet when used on curved surfaces its edge conforms to some degree.  The hook material is short, grabby, and long lasting.  Should the side of the plate happen to contact a delicate object, you'll be relieved to know that it is soft to the touch.

This is great addition to your backing plate arsenal.

Industrial strength meets precision engineering.

Overly aggressive attachment material can lead to premature failure of backing plates and buffing pads. Have you ever had to pry a buffing pad from a backing plate after extended use? I have. Sometimes, it seems as though somebody glued the pad to the plate.

Upon using this plate for the first time, I was impressed. Initially, I thought that the Velcro® backing was a bit short, and NO WAY would it be able to keep a firm hold on the heavy buffing pad I was about to use.

The team at Meguiar's reassuringly mentioned that I shouldn't always judge a book by its cover. They purposely designed the hook material with a low profile, and guaranteed that buffing pads and sanding discs would not come off until I pulled them off. Well, they were right! Removal of the buffing pad was a breeze, even after a purposely-brutal buffing session.

Avoid the drama... get this plate!

 10-10-2016 Note:  DISCONTINUED.
Please consider using the updated DBP6 instead.

Although this plate was painstakingly designed to optimize the performance of Meguiar's Unigrit™ Sanding and Foam Finishing Discs, it is an outstanding choice for use with any sanding disc or buffing pad.

The face and flared edge of this plate is soft and pliable. Consequently, it ranks among the best available for sanding curved or complex surfaces. If you need a little help keeping the disc level to the surface while you sand, its built-in pliability can help better distribute uneven applied pressure.

The micro hook attachment material is ideal for use with sanding discs because the hooks will not protrude beyond the loop backing of most discs (a common cause of pigtail scratches when soft backed sanding discs are used).

Whereas most D/A backing plates use three or four mounting studs to attach the mounting stud to the plate, this one features six, so the S6BP can handle rigorous, long-term use.

This is a plate chock full of features, making it one of our most popular sellers.

A perfect mate for Meguiar's® Soft Buff 2.0 Pads.

Leave it to Meguiar's to design a backing plate that perfectly fits their buffing pads. This unique system approach allows Meguiar's to squeeze every bit of capability from their hardware.

This backing plate will increase buffing pad performance and durability, optimizing polishing performance in the process. What's the big deal, you ask? A lot!

For starters, the outer edge of the plate has been designed to help minimize pad hazing. Plate thickness is varied, which allows the buffing pad to better contour to complex surfaces.

The specialized low profile Velcro® attachment material secures the pad to the plate, gently yet powerfully locking it in place until the job is done.  Sweating the small details pays off, as a light pull of the pad easily releases it. The attachment material has been purposely eliminated along the outer edge of the face. This seemingly small detail increases flexibility of the pad, but more importantly eliminates "edge-digging", which often occurs when the hook material "cuts" into the back of the buffing pad.

Finally, the center of the face has been cut from the plate, eliminating edge digging at the center of the pad, dropping temperature buildup in the process. It's an extra step that is seemingly insignificant, but longevity of the buffing pad is increased.  Thanks Meguiar's!

A perfect mate for Meguiar's® Soft Buff 2.0 Pads.

Leave it to Meguiar's to design a backing plate that perfectly fits their buffing pads. This unique system approach allows Meguiar's to squeeze every bit of capability from their hardware.

This backing plate will increase buffing pad performance and durability, optimizing polishing performance in the process. What's the big deal, you ask? A lot!

For starters, the outer edge of the plate has been designed to help minimize pad swirling. Plate thickness is varied, which allows the buffing pad to better contour to complex surfaces.

The specialized low profile Velcro® attachment material secures the pad to the plate, gently yet powerfully locking it in place until the job is done.   Sweating the small details pays off, as a light pull of the pad easily releases it.

The attachment material has been purposely eliminated along the outer edge of the face. This seemingly small detail increases flexibility of the pad, but more importantly eliminates "edge-digging", which often occurs when the hook material "cuts" into the back of the buffing pad.

"Failure is not an option!"
Durability is superb, thanks to its one-piece molded design.
