patience, and lots of it. Get a good buffer, don't skimp, cheap ones burn up.
Ans get good compounds and wheels, it makes a huge difference in the final product
I am having a buffer built using a 1hp motor, it will be belt driven and can run up to a 12" wheel with plenty of room to work bigger parts

Patience is a must, lol! I'll get as comfortable as possible, turn on the tunes and go to town. I'm actually doing a set of cylinders/head/clutch cover this weekend


Cascade's website is a great reference for pricing, but I always do it for less. I'm don't do it for the money, I just like making things shine
