Already seen a review where Rupes pad was used with Scholl, so the opinion summary given was flawed.
The Mille system sits between the Rotary and the LHR15MK2 and each either side does their job better. Mille will cut quicker with less work with the right compound and wool or MF pad, not the blue foam.
Its a very good machine, but buy the LHR15MK2 first.
Thanks Tony...

Thought I would just give the Mille a try something very different from my DAS6. Hopefully it does what I want, already just from picking up you can tell the quality compared to the DAS6. It just feels right!

Yes good bit of kit Rob, just be sure to only use the compounds supplied with those Rupes pads. They are designed with more R&D, time and money than realised by most to compensate for the FR and the temp concern.
Suggest you go get a few more of those wool pads from JH at Slims and ask him to save some litre bottles when they arrive soon.

Finally got round to using the Mille the weekend.

First impressions were S**T this is really different. It did take me for a ride at first until I got the hang of it and then I loved it.
I was working on a friends 08 Red Honda Civic Type R so I only needed the yellow foam pad and yellow polish.

I cut and finished really well. I am super happy with the results and so was he I will get a few pics up later. Much better to use close to edges etc with the smaller throw. Next time I will try it with a different pads and polish to see how it goes!
