I used M105 for the first time on rotary today and hated the amount of dust it generated. In comparison, Menzerna SF4500 did not dust at all when used as a finishing polish. Does this mean none of Menzerna polishes dust? I am thinking of trying FG400 or Scholl S17. Does either of them dust like M105?

Menzerna FG400 dusts, imo,not much at all. But remember that polishing compounds reacts on many things such as: humidity, temperature, type of paint; clearcoated or not, type of polisher, type of pad, how long is the polishing cycle; to short, just about right, or to long?

Finishing polishes have, by nature, less tendency to dust. SF4500 and #105 are two totaly different animals and #105 is a infamous for its dust problems. But, I don't thinks its so dusty. Try to use less polish and work it for a shorter time, ie less passes, and it will dust much less.

Compounds tend to be dusty, polishes much less so. I personally like M101 it dusts much less than 105 and gives a finish that most people would be happy with if you just waxed it to finish.
I always mask off any trim etc as in common with most compounds, it will stain if you don't execise some caution.
I've not tried the two you mention as I am happy with M101 over M105.

I've never had problems with 105. I know people say it dusts a lot- it does dust but I think to an extent when removing defects most do dust. I found menz 400 way too dusty. Apparently the consumer version Meg's ultimate compound is easier to work with.

My usual compound suspects on a correction are menz and Scholl, but others do come out to play. All comes down to what works on the day. No such thing as a 1 trick pony :)..
