    hi
    with £50 you aint going to get alot m8
    silverline orange is good for about £35-£40(same as mine)
    you will need some good pads and dont cut corners on these.
    get some meguires one at least very good for the money.

    Sonus do some very good pads. I use them on my Porta Cable. It is worth buying decent pads, as you don,t want to wreck your paint.

    If do go for a Rotary make sure you get a scrap panel to practise on first.

    Dave KGs guide on DW is an excellent read too.

    A rotary just rotates. But a DA (Duel Action) rotates and oscillates too.

    I would keep your money in your pocket. I don,t rate either of them. I don,t think they have the "guts" to do the work proporly. Spend a little more and get a decent one.
