Can anyone let me have a list of rpm regulator switch numbers to actual rpm for the 3M rotary.
Thank you

Just checking with tech service...will post up later. Overall, I think the range is 700 - 1800rpm, though.

Thanks for the reply, the rpm range is 700 - 1850, i would just like to know what the regulator swtich numbers roughly equate to.

The guy we need to speak to is away but a colleague here is pretty sure the speed is evenly spaced between the settings, so 700-1850 rpm range over the settings = about +230 rpm per setting if my maths works out:

a = 700
b = 930
c = 1160
d = 1390
e = 1620
f = 1850

Can all 3m polishes and compounds (with the 3m pads) be work in large amount of passes ranging from 600 to 1500 rpm like most polishes? Basicly do they work and respond the same as most other polishes and compounds?

Hi 3M UK!

Are the 3m electric polisher and Rupes Lh18en essentially the same polisher?

Apparently they look the same:
