I used a Dewalt angle grinder and then a Cyclo polisher. The Dewalt was bomb proof.....Tim

You must have bought a good one. I have had nothing but trouble with mine. After about 60hrs of use cleaning it daily it started hunting for rpm. Sent it to the Service shop for two weeks. Got it back in worse condition then when it left, now there is no torque, still hunts for rpm and overheats. Back to the shop. It is still in the shop and has been 4 wks and three days. I got tired of waiting and went to Northern Tool and bought a $59 one that has been filling in until I get my Dewalt 849 back. You can tell the difference between the cheap and a well built one. I miss my Dewalt

Finally got my Dewalt back yesterday. I think it is fixed properly this time. I will know for sure when I get back to the AS. The weather is getting cooler so I should be able to spend a little more time than just a couple hours in the morning before it gets too hot.
Dewalt 849 is still my first choice

Consider Zoop seal for protecting the polish work
