    I got a craftsman buffer/polisher a number of years back on a good deal at Sears.
    I think it goes a little slow for buffing.

    Everyone says griots is the best for the money. I got one but haven't used it yet. Hope they were right!

    I have a Porter-Cable 7424XP. I bought it as a kit with a bunch of different pads and 3 or 4 different Adams brand of cleaner/wax/sealers.


    I think I paid over $300 for everything, but I've made WAY more than that by doing cars for friends and neighbors.

    The nice thing about the Porter-Cable is you cannot burn the paint, unlike my old buffer.

    I found the link to the kit I purchased.
