3" tho......

3" tho......


Still a great price, Would be handy for hard to reach places. Heat.
Good for headlights
Wouldn't use one of these ever, not stuck to a drill, one slip with the speed and you've ripped a lovely new silver go-faster stripe down your bonnet.... only ever use proper buffing machines, that £20 you've just saved will fill about 1" of that 12" scratch...
off topic, but this might lure in some specialists to the thread, so I'll ask - recommend me please a good and not crazily expensive (up to £120) random orbital polisher, specifically for car use

I suppose yeah. Like wingmirrors and stuff.
£4.93 on eBay although from China, so useful if you don't need it in a rush.

Rotary machines spin anywhere between about 600 - 2500rpm and a cordless drill will be between 500 - 2000rpm depending on make and model etc for both so if anything a rotary would do more damage.

The sides of the adapter are plastic so the most you could do is make a scuff.. which you could then polish out. I'm not sure what you mean by £20 either, even the cheapest da will cost 50 quid.
If I was on a budget I'd have no problem using this carefully in the few spots it would be useful. I imagine a drill driver would be more comfortable and erganomic than a drill tho for anyone who is using this.

Those size pads in a normal drill are not ideal, you won't get it perfectly flat, if you slip, pull the trigger full on your putting all the pressure and speed on a tiny surface area. The likelihood of doing this with a drill is fairly high. Drills are not designed for this.

A normal drill is purely circular motion, no random orbit so will put swirls in the paint anyway, nevermind making the likelihood of slipping greater.

Proper buffers have wrapped edges in case you do angle at all to mitigate this.

Buffers are available from £20-£30 with proper pads, proper speed triggers, and random orbit.

But please, do buy one of these and use it on your car, it will make mine worth more...

Even a cheap machine can get great results...and a mega expansive Rupes machine can get poor results. It’s down to the user. Be careful of listening too much on forums and YouTube as they often get given things for free to review.

A good starting option is a Das Pro 6. It’s relatively good value. If you fancy something else then go for it in future if you wanted the more in vogue brands.
will this fit a das pro 6?

i need a 3"
hot deal considering i was going to order a backing plate for about this price...

DAS 6
Could be used for restoration of headlights that have become glazed .
I need new pads for my das 6 pro, 3" was hard work even on small place's let alone the hole car ! I binned my 3" because I never used them.

surely you use the 3" on the tighter areas where 5" is too big?
i do never dream of using a 3" for a whole car.

My car isn't a ripple of parts or sections where smaller parts are needed. But I my large pads fell apart (the velcro backing came away) after just starting the clean, I had to use my 3" for the rest, I was there for awhile & I never used them again. Each to their own (obviously) but I've not found a part of a car where a 3" is needed (yet).
Heat was added to the deal, they have there place but not in my bag

NOT an expert but I do have experience with DA polishers. For a beginner, Argos sell a Challenge Extreme polisher for around £50-60. This is the polisher I use with 6" cutting pads. It's good for a first polisher but you won't achieve much more than 80% correction in my experience. This is somewhat dependent on the pads and cutting compound you use. You're looking at around £100-120 initial outlay so consider getting quotes from local detailers to see if you'd rather just pay someone else to do it.

If you do get a lower prices polisher give the Meguiars Ultimate Paint kit a try and use the three step process. There are a huge amount of videos on YouTube that will help, I recommend the AMMO NYC channel as the guy explains absolutely everything.

More expensive DAs in the right hands will give a better finish but I'd just pay a professional and learn to wash your car properly to avoid further visits.
I used one of these for shoe polishing. The one i had has a soft attachment. Works really well...

What your talking about is the type of things that become available in aldi and lidl from time to time and are nothing like a proper machine polisher, there are two main types rotary and da, a rotary will not add more swirls.......... Not trying to be rude but go and do a bit more research on polishing before comparing machine polishers to a halfords special "buffer" that you plug into you cigarette lighter and use it with some autoglym srp.
