So I am placing an order for STONE SOAP, UFO MACHINE (with attachments to make it a swing arm), JAGUAR FLEX pads for the UFO machine and also for single variable speed grinders. Does anybody have any experience with any of these items. The stone soap looks too good to be true.

Also shipping directly from ITALY....geeeeeez super expensive shipping. Also going to try out the supershine and spongelux maintenance pads.

Justin, it'll likely help if you'll post links to those particular tools so the other members can for sure be on the same page.

Hi Justin

HMK P24 is an excellent stone soap. It quickly develops a soft sheen patina, and works great on acid sensitive stones. Depending on a clients maintenance practices, the end results will vary. It also may be stripped when necessary.

I am a distributor for Samich/Klindex. We use the Stone Soap regularly. I though the same thing in the beginning, but it does work very well. 1 oz to a gallon ONLY. Any more and it will leave streaks. Use soft white pads or polished stone brushes to scrub, then vacuum. It's a great product.

The shipping is expensive because of customs. Most likely they are shipping Fed Ex air, which bypasses customs, but costs more. So it comes to your door. When I import their equipment I try at do air as much as I can, but for larger shipments I have to have a broker to get it released and delivered.

Cameron, I am placing a pretty big order through a company out of Ohio I believe - Concrete Protector. Would I be able to place an order through you? Or do you only work with certain closer states?
