    Festool "polisher"

    I wondered if I could use my Festool ETS 150/3 to apply the Chemical Guys stuff using the chemical Guys pads. The Festool has hook and loop pads and the speed is very variable. It is a reciprocating oscillating machine.

    No. WAY too high RPMs. You want 600 RPM. Lowest setting is 6000 RPM.

    Thanks.

    Better to ask before trying.

    Glad I saw the message before you tried it. Get you a Porter Cable 7424xp. Inexpensive and pretty much impossible to damage your paint with it.

    PC 7424XP is a good machine.....but the Griots Garage 6" DA is a little better. Less vibration, more power and a lifetime warranty.....pretty tough combination to beat

    Yes the PC has a vibration problem. I use a Cyclo 5 pro myself. But the new Meguiar's Microfiber polishing products for the DA have made polishing so simple for the PC that I am suggesting that for beginners.
