I have the turtle wax 10" and it works very well for the price you pay. After having waxed with a buffer I will never go back to doing it by hand.

they are slightly better than by hand, but not too much better than that. the limitations on the available bonnets are a huge portion of where it shows its weakness. i would start saving your money for a real one. the bonnets dont stay on, and its not strong or fast enough to do some real paint correction.

since you're a meguiars guy, this is something you can do with the porter cable 7424 and the g110. meguiarsonline.com will be of great resource to you. ask all the questions you want.

this is what you can do with a real buffer. mind you this is a makita in the video which is similiar to a porter cable 7424, but same concept.

Dang. I won't be able to afford those higher end ones for a while.

Guess I'll be sticking with doing it by hand. At least I'll get a workout from it

That makita is a rotary buffer. The PC 7424 is a D/A polisher. Two totally different tools.

I must say though, i am very impressed with the 105 & 205 products they showed there. Might have to pick those up and see how it turns out with my 7424.

il be honest. i was hesistant at first. but after awhile i said what the heck and gave it a go. corrected all my families cars and it was worth the investment. considering a professional detailer will charge around 30-40 an hour for paint correction, it has easily paid for itself. you might end up taing out surface scratches for friends like i do and it pays for itself rather quickly .

agree . I love m105. its come to a point where i need to replace my pads so m105 doesnt have the cut it once had. you can get it in autozone for around 30 bucks for a huge bottle, or around 11 bucks for the sample size via autogeek.net. m105 can be used to the point where m205 isnt even required. i usually go from m105 to a pure polish and finaly synthetic sealant.

ive used it for paint correction, scratch removal, headlight correction, etc. its very versatile and has many uses.

I already have a small bottle of meguiars ultimate liquid wax so im gonna use that up first vefore buying more wax. I do need compound & polish before getting my 7424 into action so i think the 105 & 205 will be my choices. Id like to stay with all meguiars for now & see gow things go. Im sure i will experiment with others as times goes by.

Woo! Got some extra money coming my way! It's only $80, but it's better than nothing haha.
What Orbital buffer would you recommend for $100-$120?
