Hi Nuno,

What tool are you using?

It could be the OPM's, (Oscillations Per Minute), could vary from tool to tool? So to post the OPM's for the G100 might not equate to the OPM's for the tool you're using.

It's actually pretty basic,

High speeds, slow arm movement, 4-5 lbs of pressure for removing swirls and scratches.

Low to Medium speeds, a faster arm speed and less pressure for applying pure polishes and waxes.

What are you working on?

Mike

After taking a look through your options the Flex X 1107 VE looks very similar to the Porter Cable 7336. Also Dewalt makes the 443 i think which is also similar to the pc. I've heard somewhere that flex is essentially the european equivalent to porter cable.
