Iíve been buffing out cars since high school on my 1970 Black Monte Carlo.
Used all different products, and buffers. I still stand behind the use of the DeWalt, with Mequiarís, itís not a professional buffer, it can be bought anywhere, including amazon for 175$. Itís much better at spreading the compound. Both teenage sons have used it, including neighbors and friends. It has buffed a lot of vehicles in the last 7 years, and still going strong.
I would not recommend using any generic sprays or waxes. In the long run they just build up gunk on your paint. Iíve spent a day on a car just removing that stuff. They sell wax, and grease removers at auto body paint stores for this reason.
Iíve buffed out cars for friends and families for small fees, but to be honest for the time it takes to really do a good job most people are not willing to spend the money. If you take pride in your vehicles like I do, itís just something that youíll have to learn, and do on your own.
I was not singling anyone out for being argumentative...sorry if you thought I was... I totally agree that DeWalt makes some killer tools and I buy them when I know I am going to use the crap out of some tool. I have two of their cordless drills and one of their hammer drills that I use all the time. Call me cheap (I prefer frugal) but for a tool I use very occasionally I try and get by on a budget. I also know if you use a Harbor Freight tool like a professional tool it is going to crap out on you in short order..been there done that and learned my lesson.

Sorry friend I was not calling anyone out nor disparaging any tool or compound. It was just disappointing that the thread turned into this discussion of if you don't use this tool or compound your going to !#^%^@ the coach up, or this is the only thing that works.

Detailing can get a bit like religion unfortunately.

Just of curiosity, I wanted to see if I could find something that would provide some sort of simple "professional" comparison of the various types of polishing machines.

The info, and video in particular, on this link from autogeek, one of the largest on line detailing suppliers that provides almost anything you would ever want for detailing (I have never used them, but they are very well known) is even better than what I was hoping to find; always something to learn.

Again, just trying to be helpful and ensure that folks make well informed decisions.... And to clarify, the Flex that I have, and have been referring to in my posts is the XC3401VRG; as you see in the video and on the auto geek web pages, Flex does make a rotary was well.....
