    The low speed (1400 rpm) is too high for your final polishing. You should finish out at around 900-1000 rpm.

    Just order a UDM (PC on steriods) from http://autopia.org

    Look into a Metabo or Makita for a true variable speed rotary for heavy correction and finishing or the UDM for moderate correction and finishing. The Cyclo is also a very good machine and pretty much bulletproof.

    so the Porter Cable 7424 is 2500-6000 rpm, the craftsman i posted is 1400 & 1650 rpm, and the UDM is 2000-6000 rpm. does that mean they arent good for final polishing too? what do they do then? and what would i polish with?

    PC is 2500-6000 OPM as in orbits, not revolutions. Same with the UDM. A rotary has a direct drive motor that just spins. The PC and UDM have motors that spin and ocsillate at the same time.

    Your best bet is to register at http://autopia.org and read through the machine polishing forum.

    I drove by a local used car lot today and saw a kid that was maybe 18 polishing away with a rotary on a pretty new black Dodge Ram, I hope to hell he knew what he was doing :mamoru:
