I WANT TO BUY A NEW MACHINE POLISHER. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE ONE....DO YOU APPLY WAX BY HAND THEN BUFF IT OUT OR DO YOU APPLY WAX AND BUFF WITH POLISHER?
LOOKING FOR SOME TIPS!
Porter Cable 7424 Buffer is your best bet IMO. Stay away from cheap, store brand buffers.
I apply Zaino polish by hand and then buff it off with the Porter, but that's just because you would be wasting too much of the Zaino by using a pad.
