I recently got some of mirror glaze m01 medium cut cleaner in my quest to find a medium paint cleaner or polish. However I've learned it's formulated only for rotary buffers, the only buffers I have is the Meguiars MT300 dual action, would this chemical still be effective or safe with the DA? Or did I waste my money

See if you can return it.

It might work remove the defects, but might leave a heck of a haze, which would require another polish to remove. The diminishing abrasives in M01 need the force of a rotary buffer to accomplish the second part of their job - finishing out. On a random orbital, you're sort of just dragging the abrasives over the paint, potentially scouring it. You might get them to finish out, but it might take a long time, heavy pressure, and a stiff foam pad. And that's all a "maybe".

See if you can return it, and wither pick up Ultimate Compound and Ultimate Polish, or possibly M83, which is a medium cut diminishing abrasive polish.

Last year I did quite a few one step corrections using Ultimate Polish and green Buff and Shine pads. Ultimate Polish is a fine cut finishing polish, but when paired with that semi coarse green foam gets very nice correction, and a surprising finish.

Ultimate Compound has much better cut than M01, and WAY better finish. For me Ultimate Polish can cut better than M83, and finish out better as well.

Best of luck! Hope it works out!

Ok thanks! I was planning on following up with M205 but it sounds like it might not be able too. My question then is 105 a heavier cut then Ultimate compound? I'm trying to have a light, medium, and heavy cut option cause of the wide variety of customer cars I get some have really thin clears. I have used the dual action cleaner polish as a one step pretty successfully. Should I just stick to that for medium cut jobs then?

That is exactly what I'd do.
M100 for heavy
M83 for medium
M205 for fine polishing.

I've been very, very successful using M205 in a medium cut application though, just by switching the pad, which could eliminate the need for M83 or any other medium cut polish. That being said, in my other ranges of polish that I use, I use my medium cutters the most!

You might also want to look into the new M110, and M210. I haven't used them yet, and can't comment, but I'm looking to replace my M100 with M110, and add M210 to the stable..

Consider M110 as your choice of compound. You will enjoy not wiping off dust like M100, M101 and M105. M205 is still great as is the new M210. M205 can be used as a one step as well.
