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

    Also, reading back through this thread i agree with Mike's unused corporate feedback about a market for smaller and more powerful 8mm (or even smaller) throw DA's. I say "unused feedback" because at the time they seemed uninterested.

    However...look at the market now for small DA units for sale!

    I now use my rotary with 2 and 3" pads for tight areas because i wasn't really happy with my PC and 3" pads. I don't like the pad "shadow" as Mike calls it on the throw and a rotary gives me more precision.

    I know, I know...i need a Nano!

    I haven't tried that many but found good success with Maquiar's 5" pads though I didn't think they lasted very long before they wore out. Right now I have some LC HydroTech 5.5" that I just tried on some test spots and like them a lot. I hope to try their flat and thin pro pads next. I also like the GG 5" micro fiber pad I have.. I think the key is a thin reputable pad so it can spin easily.

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

    My Porter Cable was my first machine since I got serious about paint correction and I still use it. I have moved on to a Griots GG6 and then a Griots G9 but I still use the PC. I have a 3 inch backing plate on it and it is used for paint correction in small places and applying sealant.
    I believe in treating everybody with respect, and clean cars. That’s what I believe in.
