    Re: How many here are still using the Porter Cable DA?

    Still kicking, the PC7424 did the sanding work below on the E28's hood earlier this year to prep for some test paint.

    Great little unit, this was actually my first polisher that I picked up that really sparked my polishing obsession, must be around 14 years ago now.

    Still use mine after ~20 years. But granted, I'm not a weekend warrior, just an occasional amateur.

    Still have mine and use it. Just got a Griots G9 but now that I have it, should have just stuck with the PC. Have the PC set up with 3” backing plate.

    Re: How many here are still using the Porter Cable DA?

    I detailed a customers boat a couple of weeks ago and was offered a PC for free.. I respectfully declined.

    I had just ordered a new mini polisher to replace my HF DA, so I didn’t see any possible use for what would’ve been a downgraded version of the HF DA which I had just replaced.

    Re: How many here are still using the Porter Cable DA?

    Back in 2004 when I bought a Corvette I met a guy online at the Corvette forum who worked for Autogeek. He talked me into getting the PC.. it is the pre-XP one. I never really got good results with it other than applying wax until I found Mike Phillip's instructionals on how to use it correctly. I keep wanting to upgrade but it does everything I could ever need, especially since I own soft paint Subarus now. It's all about the right pad diameter and thickness and now I can make it spin well, polish and correct. If the PC ever breaks I will get a Flex but I just can't justify it when it does everything I need.

    So what pad did you find that works optimally?

    Don't mean to cut off jem7sk's answer, bcgreen, but i bought a bunch of LC Thin Pro 5.5" pad's specifically for my PC and they are phenomenal!
