Default Rotary on sale

Via tooltopia.com:

https://www.tooltopia.com/dewalt-tools-dwp849x.aspx

I am in no way, shape or form affiliated with TT and I do not receive any compensation for any purchasing (i.e. no affiliate link).

Just posting for anyone that wants a high quality rotary polisher / sander at a good price. If I didn't already have two rotaries, I'd be all over this one.

Found another one and this one I purchased:

https://www.drcolorchip.com/store/power-z-orbital.php

Again, in no way am I compensated for any purchase of this item. I'll be using it on my boat, possibly this weekend after the storms blow through.

So far it's more of a direct drive DA orbital, at least with the limited time I have run it. I'll be able to use my 7.5" LC pads with it, which should be nice.

Have already compounded / polished / waxed roughly 1/3 of the boat, which has oxidation on the hull gel coat and was badly needing some detail luv. Will report back on the new DA orbital.

Progress thus far using the PC 7424 XP:

Haven't had a chance to use the new polisher, but I did find this deal @ Napa. In store and online as well.

Very nice "Detail Rig" and cheaper than anywhere else on the web for this. Picked one up and it's really nice and solid. Also works perfect for working on the vehicle when you need to sit.

Used the detail rig last night when changing out my front brake rotors on the truck and this rig is SOLID and super comfortable.

Found another use for it as a vacuum stand, works perfectly.

Sam's is having a sale for members, I'm picking up the pressure washer as it has decent reviews and a 3 year warranty.

Cool

Seems you're all alone within your Thread here Beachtyme.so I figured I'd share what I use.

Had this for at least 8-10 years now and never had it quit on me whatsoever. One of the most foolproof DA Polishers on the market.

This Creeper is another piece of gear that's come in handy more times than I can count. Perfect level for cleaning wheels with drawers for Wheel Towels, Tire Shine Bottles, and much more.

Though I dislike MM for personal reasons, I must admit, this system on his site makes building the perfect Pressure Washer a breeze no matter which brand you own. He even has a ton of gear for your Karcher PW Unit too - if you feel like paying top dollar for the stuff.

Any more feedback on the polisher in the package from Dr. Colorchip?

I've been hauling it back and forth, but have yet to use it on the boat. Polishing the boat from the dock is a pain in the ****, M8. It's lift kept, so no trailer and I haven't looked in to renting a work stand at a marina, at least not yet.

I also have 7 (yes, seven...) different projects going on right now, one of which is refinishing the engine cowlings for the boat in the post that I'm (kinda...) polishing. Right now just the port side from the transom to the hull #'s is done. Translation: If I want to show the vessel's "Good side" I'll be going in circles to starboard.

I hope to have a review of it soon, but not sure just when that will be. I can tell you the unit is solid and verrry reasonable priced, but it won't be nearly as forgiving as a PC 7424XP and/or a beginner DA polisher.

For you Ryobi fans, HD is having a nice promotion. Was in Monday night to pick up a Ryobi small impact wrench and saw they were having a special that begins today, so I waited:

https://www.homedepot.com/b/Featured...s/N-5yc1vZck05

Purchase a $99 battery kit and get a tool for no charge. Can't beat that deal.

One of the freebies is an orbital buffer, which could come in handy to remove polish or sealant / wax.

I appreciate you posting in, Gunny. I too have the PC XP and put plenty of hours on it.

I'm aware of your distaste for Matt, but that's between you and him. I've personally conversed with him via email on one occasion and it was pleasant enough, but I wasn't making any product inquiries or questions. It was pointing out an error on his web site / store and used humor to get the point across. OCD peeps tend to not deal with others to well if they feel that the line of inquiry has already been answered. God knows I deal with that enough, but again, any beef with you and he is your biz.

I've perused his store for the Karcher items and it's definitely not cheap, but having seen plenty of his vids and knowing that he goes for the best, it's fairly safe to infer that what he sells will be top notch, but also pricey. The one thing I do have to recognize with Matt is he's not brand specific and doesn't appear to be a hype machine like Pan the Organizer is (IMO) and shill / fan boy products to make that $$ on referrals. I've said it before and I'll say it again,; re-bottled hype that's shilled to the gills is very prevalent in the detail product industry.
