If your rotary polisher is doing that the backing pad is clearly fucked up.



I'm glad it all worked out man. You should throw on a coat of wax though to make the shiny goodness last.

That's not a rotary polisher. It's a random orbital. It's what all the pros use.I use a rotary for buffing though.

Bo lol, the one in the video is a rotary polisher, he even says it in the video. You keep thinking it's a random orbital because it's wobbling. And no one uses random orbitals for serious polishing in paint shops. Detail shops may for some applications.

My bad. I didn't watch the vid. I just saw above it where he said that's what he used. Kinda stuck my foot in my mouth there.
Yeah and the random orbital is good for waxing IMO.
