    Attention detailers

    Looking to buy a decent - good buffer to put on some wax n buff my autos and skis. I don't want something that can burn the paint or get me in trouble. I was looking at this setup, what's your thoughts?

    Not wanting to break the bank on a buffer as well

    Nice, I spent $200 on my buffer alone for a Dewalt.....I like the selection of pads that come with that kit...

    great price for lots of goodies.
    Im sure the buff will be fine if you dont over work it.
    Brushes tend to go on buffs before grinders.
    I promise you all the pads will blow apart at high revs.
    But it is cheep to replace them.
    Using the right polish can make or break you when using a cheap buff.
    I think go for it.

    Fyi do not by microfibers with tags on them. They have nylon in them and will leave spider marks in paint. Also do not use dish soap it will strip off your wax. When you turn off or start the buffer have it on the surface to make the bearings and brushes last longer.

    Lol a buffer that won't burn the paint, any buffer will burn the paint. Show me a buffer that won't and il prove yeah wrong

    It's all in the user of the buffer..if u don't know what ur doing ^^^ ul burn the paint. Turn it up to 9k rpms works wonderful.

    The mini works awSome on skis in tigh places I don't think they make elec ones. But if u want a great air one mini for tight spots that's the ticket. I've had mine for and several others and its out preformed all of them. Ud be all mth long trying to polish a truck with that and if ud try ud be a dumba$$

    And please if U burn the paint please post pics... S

    That is a decent polishing outfit for the money. A true buffer is random orbit and not variable speed. It's almost impossible to burn paint with a true buffer. A variable speed polisher is another story. Heck, my old school polisher is not even variable speed, I work the speed with an on-off trigger technique (not for the beginner). Also on the dark colors it's very difficult not to leave swirl marks with a polisher but a random orbit buffer works great. I always hand rub the final step anyway considering my wife's show truck is black.
