I have a guess, but just wanting to tap the knowledge here.
Just got the Porter Cable 7424XP, parked in the shade and went to work. I bought a pair of the terry cloth bonnets and used some Mothers cleaner wax I had from last year. Used a generous amount of wax and applied, left some white residue behind. Waited about 20 min and removed in the same pattern.
The wax didn't seem to come off easily as I got down to the last of it..a little caking up so to speak. The removal bonnet had a ton of it on there pretty fast. I got the leftover off quick with a microfiber towel.
I used speed #3 for the whole job.
I am already planning to buy a backing plate and some good pads from Lake Country or a similar maker..thought I could get some locally but no luck.
So why did it come off so tough? Too much wax? The terry bonnet? Should I have tossed the wax since it was from last year? Something else?
I'm guessing I overdid it on the wax but not sure..
