Rupes don't but you could use a buff n shine pad. People are getting a 5 or 6 inch pad and cutting smaller sizes out of it

The yellow pad isn't a cutting pad, it's a polishing pad.

Use a green pad, or a blue pad for the most cut.

Rupes pads are in the below order from most to least aggressive:

Blue
Green
Yellow
White

That said, I bought some small Flexipads microfibre pads for mine, although they don't do the smallest size, so you'd have to cut down a big pad into smaller ones.

Might be worth trying the blue or green Rupes pads first though.

Try and search for 1" microfibre cutting pads or 2" microfibre cutting pads.

I know kamikaze do a 1" wool cutting pad.
