Rupes LHR21ES question

Can the 21ES take the smaller backing plate from the 15?

Cheers

We have quite a few customers who have purchased the LHR21ES along with the smaller backing plate from the LHR15ES.

It does work very well but not nearly as nicely balanced as either the LHR21ES or LHR15ES with the correct sized backing plate.

Yes, I run the 15 plate on my 21 sometimes. It balances out ok at high speed, but it's pretty big vibes at low speed lol!

Are you guys all just running these with the Rupes pads and polishes or can other pads and polishes be used too? Obviously I know they're "designed" to only be used with Rupes bits but ideally I'd like to keep some of my existing pads and polish rather than having the expense of swapping everything!
