    If he keeps it at the lowest (1000) rpm then the risk of burning the paint is minimal. Just remember to keep it moving...and to keep it flat. And to keep it moving. I would get used to it at that speed.

    You're going to notice they love to "jump" around. The point is to guide it along, it'll tell you what it likes and what it doesn't :)

    My first rotary experience was with a yellow polishing pad and poorboys ssr3 and I didn't burn the paint anywhere. :hs:

    i tried it with some menzerna IP last night at 1400.Its the second time ive used one and i burnt no paint! i actually managed to get some swirling out! I've got a friend/ mentor who is basically going to teach me everything i need to know with it too.

    I think i might still buy a PC...

    You also still might want to buy a few fenders and intentionally burn through the paint on one of them so you can see how quickly it can happen. Use the others to refine your technique.

    yeah still get the pc if you leave some swirls/holograms the PC can be your back up for a final polish/smr to remove any LIGHT holograms left by the rotory. make sure you keep it flat & well lubed up. Not too lubricated where its slinging all the time but just enought so you dont hear the pad scraping the finish. GOOD Luck & get ready for back pains up the ass & forearms like scottwax cause those bitches are heavy.
