    not used it yet. . .but the one practical use i can see with it is for hard to polish areas, such as under our spoilers. . . other than that, use a normal buffer/polisher.

    If you're talking about the powerball by Mothers, I use it on my alloy rims and like it. Never used it for anything other than that.

    Paint powerball is not the same thing as the powerball you use on your wheels.

    I definetly wouldn't use it. Since it's made the same as the other powerball, I would not want to have that piece of hard plastic rotating so close to my paint.

    I do use the other powerball on my wheels though and it works great.

    I know I'm reviving a very old thread here, BUT

    Has anyone tried out this "powerball for paint" I'm curious how well it does, are swirl marks an issue?

    It seems like it would be an ideal way to get into hard to reach areas. Personally I've had horrible luck with "polishers". My little hand held gets nothing done (then the battery dies to make it even more useless). My large orbital polisher doesn't get around curves well, and it stops with even the slightest amout of friction. It says this is to avoid paint damage, but its ridiculous, no-one who has tried it can hold the thing perfectly to keep it going for long. And the damn replacement pads/bonnets never fit
    (all thats sold around here is "Mastercraft" brand..good brand for tools, but the bonnets are too small to get properly and go flying off)

    So I'm down to trying the powerball for paint or perhaps the more traditional buffer (the kind that looks like an angle grinder)...that seems like a pretty harsh machine though, and I doubt it does very well in the tight spaces (the kind that are hard to rub out by hand)...thus my interest in the powerball.
