Hi Chaps,

I have a recurrent shoulder problem that goes back 20+ years and having spent 3 hours hand polishing yesterday my shoulder, neck and back are in bits this morning!

Any recommends on a machine polisher?

I have a really s**tty one that came from Motorworld but its crap ! I googled polishers last night and if I was minted I'd buy the Maguires machine, but at 200 its well out of my reach!!

Anything "similar" out there for normal person money ? Maxiumum budget around 80 (ish)

Ta,

Gaz

Whatever you do, do not buy a 12V one.

you need to be looking at Dual Action ones, they keep the swirls down.

Something like this will do...
