Can you be a little more specific on the unit you have? Make, model?

You don't work for Cingular do you? I did the same thing and bot a Black & Decker a few years ago... it was great... they decided that they would give us a "better" comp plan that cut my comissions down about $20k but I got a Orbital Polisher out of it!!! Bastards! It was the most expensive polisher ever made....

/Rant off

Basically, what you have is good tool for applying/removing wax. With anything, there is a chance of screwing something up. But, this is a completely safe tool to use as long you don't try and go overboard with it. It will save your tired arms from making every pass over your entire vehicle.

If you need help getting started with it, I'd be more than happy to show your how to use it.
