Milwaukee makes an 11 amp automotive polisher that gives a high degree of control and versatility in removing material rapidly . The speed is trigger variable from 0-1750 RPM which allows you to keep contact as you smoothly transition between speeds. The model # is 5460. Automotive paint supply houses carry items such as: 8" feathering pads for sanding - the gold bond disks last a long time and the large disk gives you a good feel for fairing - hold it flat.Velcro backed foam cutting pads with rubbing compunds can eliminate the need for wet sanding as long as the finish is fully cured. Car and boat finishers use these tools alot.
