    6" vs 7" polisher

    I'm in the market for a 7" polisher but because I've spent soo much on equipment lately I'm having to cheap out and go with the lowest cost option that'll get the job done. I've found some relatively affordable 6" random orbital polishers but the cheapest 7" RO is gonna be $100 more.

    I've never owned a polisher before so I'm wondering what's the difference between a 6" and 7". The polishing work I'll use it for is non-automotive, furniture related actually, so it won't be put through near as much use compared to auto detailing work. They all seem to have the same 5/8"-11 drive spindle for the pad so I guess the only difference would be the motor size, which would determine how big a pad it should turn.

    Am I gonna be at any kind of a disadvantage getting a 6" polisher vs. 7". Can the 6" take the same pads as the 7", maybe just cut them down some?

    Thanks

    Which specific two machines are you comparing? This will help us advise more than just the backing plate size which comes with machine.
