Go to Harborfreight.com

I bought a couple of Chicagos 3 years ago and they have taken a beating and still lived to tell about it. They are an inexpensive alternative that works well. I wouldn't go spend 199.00 + for something you might only use a couple of times.

BTW, All you need is my Oxidation remover and a foam pad!

I have 2 of these Makita Polishers , Alot of the compounds are requiring the faster speeds now,I use the yellow wool 3M pad with 3M Finess it II.It is very mild.But will bring it out,it will buff off a sticker or pin strip if ya not carefull, next I go with the foam pad with the foam pad 3m glaze,Then I wax it with a 10 inch obortal w/ Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax or Mothers.

If I get a circular, I'm getting a Milwaukee. Made in America. Not some cheap import chit.

Hey now, Don't take it the wrong way. I believe in keeping Americans working as well, but the internals are most likely from overseas as with many other power tools. It suxs I agree, but we can't seem to quit using foreign parts.
