Adam's Swirl Killer MINI 12mm Long Throw Orbital Polisher was designed with our customer in mind. This spot-correction machine polisher will be a must-have tool in your paint correction process once you try it out. You will find a use for it on nearly any vehicle you paint correct, where a larger pad and our Swirl Killer Polisher may not fit. Whether you need to polish those swirled up A, B, and C pillars on your doors, complex curves around fog lights, rear spoilers, headlights, taillights, rocker panels, the Swirl Killer MINI with its smaller machine housing and smaller pads has more than enough power to do the job and achieve perfection. The short overhang around the backing plate also allows for access into more difficult areas like on and around mirrors, clear coated wheels, door handles, and around tight emblems.
Adjustable Speed Settings
The Swirl Killer MINI is intended to be used for spot correction of specific areas on a vehicle where a full size machine polisher cannot fit. It is not designed or intended to be used to paint correct an entire vehicle. Most swirl mark removals can be achieved at speed setting 3 or 4 on the adjustable speed dial, with the higher speed 5 and 6 left for heavier scratches.
12mm Swirl Killer Polisher
A long throw polisher like the Adam’s Swirl Killer MINI is a dual-action machine polisher that oscillates and shakes the backing plate and polishing pad in many directions in quick motions, several thousand times per minute. The movement mimics how our hand moves in an irregular circular pattern when polishing or waxing a surface by hand. Dual action polishers differ from rotary buffers in that rotary buffers have fixed rotation and spin only in a circular motion without oscillating the pad. Rotary buffers are rated in Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) as opposed to the Oscillations Per Minute (OPM) of a Long Throw Dual Action Polisher.
Easy Press Lever & Ergonomic Grip For Control
The Swirl Killer MINI polisher has several design features that make it more enjoyable and comfortable to use. The ON/OFF rocker switch is large, easy to engage, and reduces strain and fatigue on your fingers when polishing by not having to hold in a trigger. The ON/OFF switch also features a soft start for a smooth and safe start. The hand grip above the polishing head is rubber for reduced vibration through your hand and arm. The backing plate has a strong Velcro hook and loop system to keep polishing pads secure during use, but still easy enough to remove the pad without too much effort. The power cord is a soft rubber design so that it can comfortably drape over your shoulder while polishing and not twist or tangle as easily. The cord is a longer 25-foot length for easier maneuverability around the vehicle.
Prep Your Paint
Before attempting anything, you need to wash your car thoroughly. You need to remove as much of the road dirt, dust, and grime as you can before you begin to polish or wax. To remove any existing waxes or sealants, use Adam's Strip Wash. If not, use Adam's Car Shampoo or Mega Foam for optimal cleaning results.
Remove Contamination With Clay Bar or Clay Mitt:
With a clean car that is free from waxes and sealants, it’s time to move on to the next stage of paint decontamination which is claying. This is all the stuff that sticks to your paint, but won’t come off in the normal washing process. The claying process is very important, and it needs to be done with care.
The final step in prepping your vehicle for polishing is taping of edges and panels. Tape helps to protect delicate materials and edges that could potentially get damaged if they come in contact with the buffer.
Prep Your Swirl Killer
When using Adam's Swirl Killer, you'll want to spin the pad freely on the tool and hit it with a pad cleaning brush to knock out any loose material that may remain from the manufacturing process to avoid it kicking out early during the buffing process.
Priming a clean, dry pad is considered the best approach for using Adam's Swirl Killer Polisher because it ensures the working surface of the pad is wet with product. This is important when working at maximum efficiency as the polisher hits your paint.
Priming the pad also ensures that you don't have any dry portion of the pad working over the paint un-lubricated. This really isn't a risk because since you're just starting out you're going to be removing defects a lot more serious than would be caused by any portion of the pad that is dry and spinning against the paint.
Once the pad is primed, center the backing plate on the pad and begin polishing. Our Swirl Killers are equipped with speed gauges. We recommend starting at speeds 1-3.
Remove Swirls & Scratches
When polishing your vehicle, work in left to right and top to bottom motions. 50% overlap per pass. Once you've polished out all swirls and scratches
remove residue with Detail Spray and a plush microfiber towel.
Adam's Swirl Killer MINI allows you to finish down a surface amazingly, to as near flawless as possible with minimal effort. In some instances, this can be accomplished in as little as one polishing step, unlike rotary buffers. Rotary buffers can leave holograms or buffer trails from improper technique, pad type, or compound, which then require additional polishing steps to make the surface hologram free. The longer throw of the Swirl Killer MINI when compared to other traditional random orbital polishers allows for stronger and faster correction, while still being safe on the surface. For these reasons, Long Throw Polishers are bridging the gap in regards to time savings compared to Rotary Buffers.
