Guide to Machine Polishing......

It's been a long time since I did any and also I'll be acquiring a new machine, Makita PO6000c. Where online is best for a tutorial etc?
Thanks people.

Kelly Harris was running a one day course I seem to remember seeing a post. Might be worth having a look on his site or hitting the team up. You can only learn so much from reading and watching a video, also who is to say they are demonstrating correct technique

What is the correct technique everyone's technique is different, these are only guidelines on how to machine polish

The only way is to watch videos and then practice and practice on scrap panels till you have enough ability to go to the next level

Come on mate you honestly think you can learn in 1 day about machine polishing instead of practicing for hours and days yes you will learn the basics of machine polishing about 1% but it can't beat hands on experience these 1 day courses are good for someone who wants to learn the basics but that's it, you will definitely learn more practicing yourself or going back for a refresher course and then carrying on practicing and it doesn't take years to learn

Obviously you need to practice but you will get more benefit from this than watching some YouTube video.
