Exactly so

Should I lower the speed of the DA as well? I used a speed of 5 when working the compound with the 5" pads
I don't know if it will make that much difference, but certainly something to bear in mind when you're using the smaller pads, that you might need one less pass, or to apply a bit less pressure.
