This is actually a 5" Random Orbit sander with a 6" polishing Velcro adapter pad. I had a 6 inch counter weight inside it, but could tell no difference in the amount of vibration, so I just keep the 5" counter weight in it.

Nice Job

I have the Porter cable 7424XP - which is the 6" variable speed orbitor

I bought a kit from Adams Polishes that gives me the counter weight and plus velcro pad that holds the polishing pads.

I agree - much easier to do with polisher then by hand

Waxing

By hand is the only way to go. You don't need no stinkin' machines.

Very nice! Thanks for the information on the PC. Hand waxing is OK but machine polishing is required to get swirls and scratches out of clearcoats. Some very informative videos on the Adams website. ( I am not associated with the product, just impressed with the results.) Thanks again. Keep the shiney side up!
