Yeah, I tend to agree with that. The banners that are on my walls in my garage certainly would mimick that thought as well.
As for a PC, you're not going to have sling. It is, however, a fantastic way to eliminate lots of minor paint issues. A rotary can do more work over time but, the PC is light years safer...
Tinkering around with my 'test hood' (that was disposed of a couple of weeks ago), I put a new, dry 6" pad on the rotary and cranked it up to see what it would take to 'burn' the paint (as I had really never experienced it). It was ALARMING at how fast it happend.
Same test with the PC -- well, I couldn't get it to burn. I marr'd the heck out of it but, I never got any smoke.
I did with the rotary... in something like 7 seconds. HAHA!
oh yeah and not for sure....but i think the pc i tried had a larger counter weight for more "action" i guess that can be done to those machines...that could be why the vibration was just too much.
The heavier counterweight will help but, it's not substantial in my opinion. Like 03mustang, I would concur that the vibration is something that most can handle when it yields great results and my customers are happy.
