    Default Megs Orbital polisher

    Hi Guys/ Gals, Are the meguiars orbitals any good, been looking on Flea bay and can pick one up for around £40. I know you can get the different pads etc, but is it variable speed an has anyone actually used one?

    OR do I just save my cash an get a proper pc and accessories etc when I can afford it?

    Open to the floor as always.

    i heard that these were going to be delayed without any release date confirmed?? but if you've seen them on ebay i guess some people must have them. are they being shipped from the states of from uk sellers for £40.

    apparently it's very similar to the porter cable dual action polisher, so it should be good. in fact, it must be if meguiars are going to put their name to it
