Would this work well for a newbie at swirl removal.
Or should I be looking for a orbital sander there?
The 7-inch variable looked OK at first but then the slowest speed is 2,500rpm, way too fast for swirl removal. Even with milder pads, it may have too much heat for the polish(es) to work properly.
