so i really wanted an orbital buffer put a really good one like the porter cable but cant bring myself to send 100 bucks for one so i made my own for 30.00 heres how

Ryobi 6 inch orbital buffer
Orbits per Minute:
4,800 ( porter cable is 5000...i think)
Orbital Pad Coverage:
6"
Net Weight:
3.08 lbs. (thats 2.5 pounds lighter then a porter cable)

after all is said and done this buffer can take all hook and loop (Velcro backed) pads. you will no longer have to use the Bonnets that always fall off.

the buffer $24.00 at home depot



Velcro about $6.00 get the industrial kind



apply the velcro across the pad in 3 rows



now u just have to trim the edges



after its all cut to shape



attach hook and loop pad of your choice. now u have tons of options since u can get anyone's u want. i bought these--> http://www.autogeek.net/lc-ccs-6inch-pads.html



there u go now time to buffer to shine

how many bonnets are you guys going through on your R51?

After about one side of the vehicle I find it doesn't remove the wax so I am changing out twice for a total of three 10" bonnets when I decide to wax my rig.
