    Looking for a good DA polisher, but do not want to spend a lot. I have been looking at auto geek.com. Would like your suggestions/recommendations.

    I can't recommend a brand of DA, but it would be best to get one with forced rotation.

    Porter Cable 7424 XP, got mine at Detailed Image. I've had outstanding results with Lake Country orange/white pads and Meguiar's 105/205 compounds.

    Same - and it all came from AutoGeek, except I use their XMT swirl removers in 3 different grades (1, 2, 3) depending on what I'm working on. Last year they had a blowout on Lake Country pads and I went online crazy.

    It's www.autogeek.net - not .com

    As with most detail supplies and work, there's an art to using a DA. Get the Autogeek DVD of polish, wash, detail, swirl removal. Pop a brew and watch.

    Re: Good DA polisher

    I come up through a family of auto paint & body family and know how to use a buffer but I fund the the PC 7424XP is better than a buffer. It is by far safer for an amatuer to use than a buffer especially on older paint.
