Introduction: Car Polisher Using Drill Machine

Build your own car polisher using drill machine with low cost.

Step 1: Parts and Tools Needed

Drill machine
Sponge
Synthetic rubber adhesive
Dent removal stem from pops-a-dent
Spray can cap
screws
knife

Step 2: Cutting the Sponge

Draw a circular shape on the sponge and cut it. The circular shape should be more than the cap that you are using.

Step 3: Cutting the Cap

Cut the cap so that the height of the cap is reduced.

Step 4: Attaching the Stem to the Cap

Place the stem on the center of the cap and mark the holes. Drill at least two holes and screw it as shown in the picture.

Apply the S R adhesive on both the cap and the sponge. Leave it for one minute and attach it.

Step 6: Final Product

Now you can polish your car or bike.

Ideally you can use a nut & bolt setup which is approx. 3 to 4 " long and pass it through the cap instead of the dent removal stem. To allow the sponge to stick properly you can make a small cut out in the sponge to accommodate the Bolt head while sticking the sponge to the plastic cap.

really nice work. but get an angle grinder with polishing disc.

Angle grinders are operated at 10K RPM which can damage paint/surface even if we use sponge or other soft materials.

This Jugaad can be effectively used if we have variable speed drill or angle grinder.

Thanks for watching. Yes you are correct but getting an angle grinder and polishing disc will cost more with respective to mine.

Best jugaad I've come across! But how did it work out? Are you using the front of the sponge or the side for polishing? Is it a variable speed drill? Thanks.

Thank you. We can use both front and sides for polishing. My drill is not having variable speed. If your drill is having varible speed it is good.
