I got a 20 dollar WalMart job (actually got it at Fleet Farm, but...). Works pretty good, but the pad that came with it kinda sucks. An additional 10 bucks got me 2 artificial wool pads at Wally World. So.... 30 buck to "get the job done". You can spend a lot more, tho, if you want

I just bought a PC #7424 online with a hook & Loop backing plate, foam pad and it was only $126.00 including the UPS 3 day air fee.

Thanks,

I picked up a 10" corded Craftsman for 25$ with tons of different pads. The store marked it wrong the first day there

So what do you look for when choosing a buffer?
