The thing costs a few bucks and has maybe 15 minutes of video with the majority of it selling his products. I expected the video to teach me something, but I came away with absolutely nothing learned.

Griot also put the ROB on setting 4 but it must have been on 1 because it moved so slowly that it was barely spinning if at all. He was just dragging the machine across the paint.

A common problem when using setting 4 on the Porter Cable RO, if you use to much pressure it will stop moving. I use setting 6 for polishing, 4 is okay for AIO though just watch the amount of pressure you use.

Why would the use of a direct drive rotory polisher be bad? If anything its better. Of course, better things come at a price. This price being having to learn and amke few mistakes, but to say to "stay away, no matter how talented you are" is wrong. I get completely filler free, swirl free results with the use of a makita, and rarely use my PC.

Griots Garage has some cool stuff, and @ a price. I never thought you'd have to pay for them to sell you their product though....(refrencing the purchase of the CD)
