    Orbital Buffer??

    I was thinking of getting a electric buffer for my paintwork waxing etc..
    I was wondering if anyone on here uses one and if they are bad for the paint work as I was always told not to put or take anything off of the paintwork in circles?? any help would be great

    It all depends what you are after to be honest. I have a DA polisher with correct products and pads this machine can be used to safley remove marks and swirls paint oxidation, for a proper setup looking at around £150 - £170

    You can get those cheap ones like reviewed in Auto express which are fine for applying waxes / polishers.

    Then there is rotary which i would not reccomend unless you know what you are doing as you can do more damage then good.

    thats a brief outline JJ is the man to speak to or have a look on here fpr advice etc.
