??? On using High speed buffers

I'm using a regular orbital buffer to apply wax but remove it by hand. I'm considering a high speed buffer but am worried about damaging/burning my paint. Any recommendations for a safe alternative buffer that will still yield quality results???

You should check out http://autopia-carcare.com/dual-action-polishers.html
Porter Cable DA polisher 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. You will be able to remove some paint flaws and its safe on your paint, no chance of burning the paint like with a rotary. 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.

Do yourself a favor and join www.detailcity.com enter the forums and search for Porter Cable or PC (acronym they use over there) to see results and ask questions. The guys over there are very knowlegable and many are professionals.

Porter Cable, foam pads, and some 3M. Just don't spend too much time in one spot and you'll be a-okay!!

Search for the porter cable. It is offered in a couple of different packages. You can check porter cables website for more info and model numbers. I think the cheapest i've seen it is $119. Griots has it for $199.
