ets 150/3
« on: August 11, 2013, 05:09 AM »
i own a festool  ets150/3 fiotted with 6" backing plate and a white "honeycomb" waffle sponge. Applying Zaino -PC by hand to my 2010 Mercedes E350 cdi estate has had little effect on paintwork. I am thinking about using my ets 150 instead of my hand to improve the paint finish. You do not state that an ETS150 is ok for car body. Can I  use the ets 150 on car paint?

Sure you can, but random orbit sanders don't work nearly as well as rotary tools like a Rotex sander or polisher.
