About Flex Polishers
You can polish your car's paint by hand, but if you are picky about the finish, you need the right tool. A Flex Polisher mimics the actions of a human hand, without the imperfections that the human hand can leave behind in the paint. The Flex 3401 Polisher is a random orbital polisher, which means that it gives you greater control over the tool and allows you to spread wax or rubbing compound evenly. The biggest problem that home users tend to have with rubbing compound is that they use it unevenly, leaving dips in the paint. Those are difficult to fix, and you can actually damage the paint down to the bare metal. With a random orbital polisher, you can make sure that the compound polishes evenly, buffing out scrapes and scratches easily without having to go over the same spot repeatedly. Once you add a Flex Polisher to your tool kit, you need the accessories that go along with it. The knowledgeable sellers on eBay can recommend the right pads, buffers, and finishing tools to accomplish nearly any task.
