    Re: Well, first day using random orbital polisher, and I failed

    Tons of GREAT advice and guidance offered up here.

    Here's my take...

    It's a TEST panel. Crank that thing up to 6 or all the way up. Tape out a section about the size of a MF towel and grab a CLEAN, DRY pad. 4-5 dots of compound and VERY slow arm speed.

    With the backing plate marked with a Sharpie line, find the perfect amount of downward pressure that KEEPS IT SPINNING. Then do about 4-6 section passes.

    Then get back to us...
