    Hi all,

    I feel like I'm picking up "bad habits" at work. We run an extremely large operation where I work, so speed is very important. Due to this I feel like sometimes I'm skipping steps ya'll would do and what not.

    The main one that comes to mind is that I see most everyone mentions using a PC to buff cars. We use highspeed DeWalt buffers at work. I'm wondering what's the difference in the two, and when I buy my own for home use, which one should I buy. If you think I should buy the PC, how will using it be different?

    Thanks. :wavey:

    PC is random orbital, rotary is fixed rotation. In the hands of a competent detailer, a rotary will do more work in less time. In the hands of a hack, it will leave rotary swirls and burnt paint.

    i now use a pc to get the shine and remove anything left from rotary use as hologram marks or left over compound build up. i use the rotary for heavy stuff such as swirl removable (caused by wool pads), scratches, scuffs, etc. a pc just wont cut it on defects.
