    looking for a decent rotary

    Hello guys,

    I know Flex, Dewalt or Makita would have your vote but for a 200$ price range what would you pick ? Shinemate EP801? ShinemateEP812 ? Maxshine shinemaster M1000 ? Chemical guys Buf504X ?

    Or anithing else??

    I'm very confused reading many many posts and reviews.

    Re: looking for a decent rotary

    I have a flex lightweight. It works very well and I’ve done an entire interior and hull of a boat with it , with great results. I don’t do extreme correction that often that I need a rotary, but when I do the flex works great. I usually use it with a purple hybrid wool pad.

    None that you mentioned. Mike Phillips and my favorite rotary is the Flex PE 14-2-150. Smooth as silk, but pricey.

    I got a cheap Amazon Tacklife rotary…..good enough for me…..haven’t had to polish/buff in over 2 years. It’s a wheel….it spins……

    I like the Rupes the best. The Flex PE 14-2 is my second favorite.
