This Apex Customs Karate Kid 2.0 DA Polisher 8mm Enthusiast's Kit contains:

The Karate Kid 2.0 is our entry level random orbital polisher designed from the ground up. Featuring an 8mm throw with a standard 5” backing pad, this polisher is perfect for correcting and polishing. The M8 female screw on the shaft of the polisher also provides the flexibility to mount other backing plates.

Dual action random orbital polisher rotates through the momentum created by the high speed orbital motion. As there is no direct link between the rotations and orbit, this makes dual action random orbital polishers the safest tools to use for beginners but also enables effective paint correction.

Please note that 2 spare carbon brushes are included.

Our quality high pack German foam pads are the best you can find on the market.

The 6 inch Yellow polishing pad has a medium density foam suited for slight to medium paint correction. It is used after cutting to remove heavy swirl marks created when cutting.

The 6 inch White finishing pad is ideal for the application of fine jewelling type finishing polishes after general polishing to bring through that gloss and new car shine.

    Amazing results

    After speaking with the knowledgeable team at the detail store it was suggested we purchase the Apex Customs Karate Kid 2.0 DA Polisher 8 mm Clarity Compound kit to give our natural raw edged timber river pour resins a mirror like shine for our small craft store, Creations Plus, it was dispatched quickly and arrived well packaged, and the kit certainly met our requirements as a handy & efficient polisher for the resin boards. we will show case the polisher during our River pours info sessions.

    Polishing Black Belt

    The Apex Karate Kid is definitely the Mr Miyagi of the polisher world. It has meant I have taken the trophy at the most recent “All Valley (polishing) Tournament” last weekend..

    Thanks Apex 🥋🏆
