Where can I rent a floor buffer and diamondbrush attachement that is depicted on your website? My local store does not have it.

Your web site shows a video with someone removing paint from a cement floor using a rented floor buffer and diamondbrush attachment.  My local store doesn't rent tools.  I am in Paso Robles California.   Which store do I have to go to to rent this tool?

I can't help with rentals in your area but you could try calling your local Home Depot or using the store locator function on Home Depot's website.  You may also have national and "mom and pop" rental stores in your area (use your favorite search engine).

I did want to remind you that old paint can contain lead and you want to test for that before making a bunch of dust.  Lead test kits are available at Home Depot for about $10.

Hi nealnorlack,
I contacted the next nearest store:

1551 Froom Ranch RdSan Luis ObispoCA 93405 View On Map
Phone: (805)596-0857
Mon-Sat: 6:00am - 10:00pm, Sun: 7:00am - 9:00pm

Unfortunately, the Service Desk informed me that The Home Depot doesn't rent tools in your area.

She recommended United Rental.

The tool you seek is called: Diamond Blade Etcher.

It has several different paddle boards which are similar to different grits on sandpaper.

Just like a hardwood floor sander, you need to keep this tool moving to prevent digging a deeper spot on your floor.

If you try the finishing blade (similar to finishing sandpaper), you'll run less risk of digging into the floor.

You can also add weight to the top of the etcher to improve the cut if the paddle you select is too fine.

Consider taping the baseboard to prevent scuff marks on the wall.

Hey nealnorlack,

Since you originally asked your question, we produced this How To Video.

Click the link to see the tool and the cutting wheels ... one for removing adhesives and the other for cutting a thin layer of cement.
