The title says it all. I have no experience with car detailing and I don't want to start off the wrong step by picking up a crappy orbital. Tools are everything!!!

Your not going to find a new one for that price

costaltools.com has Porter Cables about the best deal on the net..comes with the backing plates and in some cases, foam pads.

I hear the Porter Cable orbital is the best.....then again its about $100 with pads.

Go PC 7336 SP from Lowes $109.00 no waiting because they stock it and dont go cheap buy the good tools, paint repair is expensive.

Depends what you want it for. If it's just waxing, I have no complaints with the Ryobi I picked up at Home Depot for $19.95. But it's no good for serious paint work.

Trust me, save your money and get the PC. Spending $50 on another orbital is throwing $50 out the window unless you're only going to use it to wax. You said it yourself, you don't want to start off on the wrong foot - get the PC from Lowes, $99 with the 10% off coupon

The P/C is also a damn good sander. Get the tool and pads from Coastal Tool. Great service and good prices.
