It generates a 12mm orbit diameter, with random orbit action.<br/><br/>This module can be paired with the 1" & 2" Velcro Backing Plates. It can also accept the 1" Vinyl-Faced Backing Plate.<br/><br/>Shown paired with the 996.001 Nano 2" Velcro Backing plate.<br/><br/>Male thread: M6-1.0 | Female thread: M8-1.25<br/><br/>581.390/C<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano 3mm Random Orbital Module.<br/><br/>This BLUE color-coded module screws directly onto the Nano. It generates a 3mm orbit diameter, with random orbit action.<br/><br/>Ideally, this module should be paired with the 1" Vinyl-Faced Backing Plate, for the purpose of spot sanding. Its diminutive orbit action can be easily absorbed when paired with overly tall or squishy buffing pads. This module can also accept Nano 1" & 2" Velcro Backing Plates. <br/><br/>Shown paired with the 997.001 Nano 1" Vinyl-Faced Backing plate.<br/><br/>Male thread: M6-1.0 | Female thread: M8-1.25<br/><br/>562.390/C<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano Rotary Action Module.<br/><br/>This GREEN color-coded module screws directly onto the Nano. It generates a directly-driven rotary motion.<br/><br/>This module should ONLY be paired with the 1" Velcro Backing Plate. If an attempt is made to install the 2" Velcro Backing Plate onto this module, the backside of the plate will twist & then JAM against the Nano's protective shroud, and become STUCK. Even worse: the Nano's delicate composite internal gears may BREAK due to the strain.<br/><br/>In an attempt to install the 2" backing plate onto the rotary module, some Nano users have chosen to remove the protective shroud to eliminate the clearance issue. Although this seems to be a feasible workaround, the potential friction & drag created by a 2" pad (run in rotary mode) can overstress the Nano, potentially weakening, damaging, or breaking its gears (which is WHY the module was purposely built SHORT).<br/><br/>Shown paired with the 995.001 Nano 1" Velcro Backing plate.<br/><br/>Male thread: M6-1.0 | Female thread: M8-1.25<br/><br/>995.001<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano 1" Velcro Backing Plate<br/><br/>Specifications-<br/>Material: Plastic | Actual Diameter: 1-3/16"<br/>Weight: 10 grams | Thread: M8.1.25 Male<br/><br/>996.001<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano 2" Velcro Backing Plate<br/><br/>Specifications-<br/>Material: Plastic | Actual Diameter: 2"<br/>Weight: 8 grams | Thread: M8.1.25 Male<br/><br/>997.001<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano 1" Vinyl-Faced Backing Plate<br/><br/>Specifications-<br/>Material: Plastic/Foam/Vinyl | Actual Diameter: 1-3/16"<br/>Weight: 6 grams | Thread: M8.1.25 Male<br/><br/>9.BF3000<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano 1" Horsehair Brush (brown bristles)<br/><br/>9.BF3030<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano 1" Nylon Brush (white bristles)<br/><br/>9.1396/C<br/>Rupes BigFoot Nano Multi-Wrench.<br/><br/>Use to install and remove modules & backing plates.<br/><br/>Rupes 1" (9.BF40H) and 2" (9.BF70H) Nano BLUE Coarse Foam Pads are designated as being HARD CUTTING pads.  Although these pads INITIALLY feel rigid, they become very pliable as they warm & saturate with buffing liquid.<br/><br/>Blue pads feature a large pore, thick-wall design. The "open cell" structure of the 9.BF40H and 9.BF70H remain clog-free longer than traditional foam cutting pads. However, they may sling or splatter if too much compound is used.  To control sling, do not intentionally saturate or use an excess quantity of compound with these pads. Blue pads do not require (nor benefit from) priming of the pad.<br/><br/>The 9.BF40H and 9.BF70H are SUPER PADS for compounding duties, as it is common to see diminutive-diameter pads saturate quickly with buffing liquid and paint residue (and these pads WILL NOT remain loaded for an extended period of time).<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>1" (Velcro: 1-3/8" | 35mm) • (Pad Face: 1-3/4" | 45mm)<br/>2" (Velcro: 2-1/8" | 54mm) • (Pad Face: 2-5/8" | 67mm)<br/><br/>Rupes 1" (9.BF40W) and 2" (9.BF70W) YELLOW Fine Foam Pads are designated as being MEDIUM or FINE POLISHING pads. For general polishing duties, these buffing pads are TOUGH to BEAT. The 9.BF40M and 9.BF70M are UNEQUALED in versatility of use, and can be paired with heavy-cut compounds OR finesse-grade polishes.<br/><br/>In larger diameters, Rupes YELLOW foam buffing pads are WORLD RENOWNED.<br/>These pads should be staples in your pad arsenal.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>1" (Velcro: 1-3/8" | 35mm) • (Pad Face: 1-3/4" | 45mm)<br/>2" (Velcro: 2-1/8" | 54mm) • (Pad Face: 2-5/8" | 67mm)<br/><br/>Pictured: Rupes HR81ML Long Neck Nano, outfitted with 12mm Random Orbit Module, 2" Velcro Backing Plate, 2" Blue Coarse Foam Cutting Pad.
