I`m always noting how some rotary guys think that *any* RO/DA is a vibration monster and that makes me think they`d *really* hate the Flex 3401.

    Not that I know how other people think about this stuff so it`s not like I`m arguing with you, just scratching my head and wondering about it.
    Sorry about that. I was referring to the pe 14. I don`t care for the 3401 at all.

    Re: Want to add a 2nd DA polisher

    Well...I ended up finding an Adam swirl killer at a good deal. Should have it by Friday.

    Also looked into the diavolo cordless 12v mini polisher kit. I have a offer in on Ebay on that one.

    So if all that works out my polisher setup will then be

    Adams swirl killer 15MM throw with 5” pads

    PC with 3” pads

    Diavolo mini for 1” and 2”

    I also have a Meguiars DA power system for a drill that I’ve thought about using to apply sealants and such. But if anyone wants it I’ll trade it for some other detailing supplies

    Still not convinced I don’t want to pick up a G8 and relegate the PC to some other purpose. I guess time will tell

    Astouffer512- Ah, glad you came to a decision!

    Just FWIW, there`s *ZERO* way I`d want to use the "drill setup" for much of anything, let alone LSPing a whole vehicle. IMO that`d be a good use for the PC if/when you get the G8, or...even if you don`t. It only takes a moment to switch the PC`s plate and IME there`s no need to change the counterweight.

    If i had to do again and the boss 15 was $300+ i would’ve just bought g8 and 9. Only 2-5 cars a yeR like you.

    Right now though Griots has the boss 15 for $225 and i would jump on that. It’s an awesome polisher with a proven track record. Autopia hasca PM policy so see if they’ll match it.

    I talked with Will at Autopia and they will price match Griots.
    Thinking about this, Will said I could use my reward points also
    There’s a place in the brain for knowing what cannot be remembered.
