    I purchased this unit from Len and used on two bike's tanks & fenders so far, worked great. I used a combo of hand sanding and my 6" DA up to 5000 then the 3M PerfectIt (sp?) with the 3" H&L pads and it worked great.

    for me any time you put weight or pressure on it it slows down and dont maintain RPM like my makita,
    makita also has a slow start to help not burn your paint

    ALL pneumatic buffers loose RPMs when pressure is applied to the pad. The better electric buffers have more torque and maintain their speed when pressure is applied.
