I have been trying to fine tune my methods of using OC and OHC. I want to make sure that the products are breaking down well before I dry buff, which can happen around here . Addendum: I forgot to specify that I use Lake Country yellow cutting pad for OHC and Meg's W8006 polishing pad for OC.
To clear up the terminology, let's use a square of an area. I start from the top left and using side by side motion, I reach the bottom right of the area. I consider this as 1 pass. 2 passes means after the frst pass, I reverse my steps and return to top left of the area. With this cleared up I have thought of 3 methods to try out:
1) 2 passes @ 600RPM to spread the product evenly, 2 passes @ 1100RPM, 4x @ 1400RPM, 2x @ 1100RPM (drying up), 2x @ 600RPM.
2) 2x @ 600RPM, 2x @ 1100RPM, 2x @ 1700RPM (dries up rather quickly but also breaks down the abrasives quickly), 2x @ 1100RPM (drying up), 2x @ 600RPM
3) 2x @ 600RPM, 6x @ 1100RPM (drying up), 2x @ 600RPM.
As you can see, when it starts drying, I will revert to lower RPMs to finish. I also noticed that when the abrasives are breaking down nicely (hazy->clear), the lubricants will start drying also. Is that suppose to happen?
Thank for anyone that can help me on this matter.
