I am willing to learn. Please educate me on the different systems. I would like a breakdown on the GG6 to show exactly why it is not a D/A. I am unable to PM due to low post count.

Thank you for that information, but this clearly solidifies my opinion on the GG6 being a DUAL ACTION buffer.

Excerpt from the Ehow Article -

Options
Dual action machines offer more options than orbital polishers in two respects. Generally, orbital polishers operate at only a single speed. Dual action buffers, on the other hand, operate at various speeds. A single dual action buffer contains a number of speed settings, to meet various needs. Also, dual action buffers come with multiple types of pads, which you can easily remove and replace, allowing you to complete a complex job or series of jobs easily with one machine. You can remove and replace pads on orbital polishers, as well, but it takes more time and proves more difficult. I understand that they omit the dual action in the name of it, but in the product information it states that is is "Dual-Action 2,500 - 6,800 Orbits Per Minute". Maybe I am just crazy.



I believe you are thinking too deeply/trying too hard into this to prove a point. I can see you know your stuff based on your work, but you may need to re-think your opinion on this. If the GG6 was solely an orbital polisher I would not be able to remove swirls and scratches with it. I have clearly done this with the GG6.

Does that Pete's 53 contain some filler color? Does it fill out light scratches with color?

They move in eccentric circular motion.

Rotary is the other system you are thinking about.
