These tapers are used for attaching onto a floor standing polisher. The old Cannings polishers are very popular and these tapers fit this style machine. Old tapers can lose their thread and become dangerous as the mops can then fly off! Tapers should be replaced. The external thread is used for winding on polishing and abrasive mops. These machines are used by metal polishers, fabricators etc.
Our new bench polishers 1.5 PH machine takes a No. 2 taper. The 2 and 3 HP machines and the slow speed polishers use a No. 3 Taper. We sell more No.2 than any other taper.
