What's the difference between all these different machines. I see a lot of different brands and models and assume they're for different purposes. Can someone explain? I'm looking for a machine to do headlights restoration and one I can use for paint work.

Here are some links to explinations



The only two machines these do not cover is the Flex VRG 3401 XC and the Rupes line.

Rupes line is a DA spins of axis in random patterns. However with a very large throw increasing polisher effectiveness.
Flex - is a DA spins then moves off axis in random patterns but is forced rotation. More power faster cut. Don't take forced rotation as being a bad thing it is extremely safe machine and my favorite.

I was REALLY going back and forth on Flex forced rotation and the Rupes 21. After a LOT of agony trying to decide, I went Rupes 21. I am very happy with my purchase but I know I would have been just as happy with the Flex.
