I'm struggling to see the point of these I'd in honest, but I'm prepared to be corrected

When you are polishing, the polish is on the paint so you can't see the defects while polishing

You check for correction when you remove the product, but at that point you're not holding the polisher and therefore this light

Or am I missing something?

Do you use lights at all when polishing ? - i.e a floodlight ? chances are you do ? they can throw light that doesn't show the paintwork swirls etc and have to be positioned all the time unless you have a light tunnel etc - this eliminates the need and puts light where you need it - highlights the paintwork further - the light is right at the point where you need it ? - they can be switched on and off while polishing but as you can see if the photo the enhance the paintwork to show swirls that don't look to be there under other lights




think you have to see them in action

Oh yeah i absolutely do use floods and spot lights, but as soon as the polish is on the panel and you are polishing you cant see the defects (which is when you are holding the machine)

You put the machine down to remove via cloth, at which point you can then inspect the paint

At this point I don't have the machine in my hand so I am likely to pick up a smaller lighter more wieldy light rather than my polisher with a light strapped to it

The pics show a machine with a pad laid against the panel, but I cant see any polish anywhere which i think is key in all this

Good spot - they conveniently omit the polish in all the pics. Who pushes their polisher around the car with a dry pad on it to inspect the paint?!

May still help if you're polishing in poor light, but probably no more than a head torch. Also means you risk banging the metal arm/torch into the car somewhere, such as the wing mirror etc.

Seems a bit of a fad, but who knows - many power tools come with built-in work lights these days.

*Edit - just noticed that in all the pics with 2 lights attached, the user isn't even able to hold the front grip. The guy in the pics has his hand on top of the polisher!

Looks like the Star ship Enterprise

The only place I see it being useful is doing large bonnet or roof as for the rest of the car it's pretty useless

I raised a similar query, when this "must have product" was featured.

http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=405651

I now know where I am going wrong- I am using polish on my pad


I think I should stop using the polish and then I will be able to see clearly when I have achieved sufficient correction.
