Sears doesnt carry a high speed buffer, they carry a Craftsman low speed orbital.....which is worthless IMO

Autopia sells the same Poter Cable DA polisher that Meguiars sells but at a much cheaper price and it includes 3 pads for $179.
From what I've read and pictures of results I've seen its well worth it IMO. Don't bother with a low end orbital polisher you won't get the results your looking for. I have the sears one, its collecting dust. You can get almost all the results of a rotary buffer with the Porter Cable but don't have the risks involved like burning your paint.

Forgot the link!!! here you go.............

He means that its worthless for taking out imperfections and good scratches/squirls... If you're not to careful with changing the cloth bonnets, it will create new scratches and swirl marks... So going with a high speed like a makita or dewalt will do the job... The orbital is for waxing purposes not buffing...

Actually the Porter Cable DA can remove imprefections in the paint, scratches, swirl marks, with the right pads and product.

I'm sure it can but I'd rather have the Makita 9227 or Dewalt 849 for that...

you should ditch that carnuba wax for something a little better. You will be happier with some of the new products out now. IMO
