my Lavina goes up to 1400 rpm..we hone at 400 rpm, then raise it to 800 rpm once we start polishing..800 grit and above we crank it, all done wet..We are doing mostly commercial so dont have to tape. If there is a chance of damage, we hold a thin sheet of plexi glass to prevent any splashing..the lavina doesnt splash  really anyway, unless the floor is uneven. i used the 20 in lavina.

I recall from past message feeds that a lot of you liked using higher rpm machines when polishing terrazzo. How high of an rpm do you recommend?
