MY buddy works at a detail shop and told me that you can use an angle grinder as a buffer but he does not recommend it because of the speed (RPM). if you were to press too hard or if the grinder get off on you then it can do some nasty damage to your paint.

the ones that are really cheap are orbital buffers, and unless you know what your doing, you can do some paint damage...for anyone thinking about a buffer, consider the Cyclo, the #1 foolproof paint buffer...

The dual head ones tend to be better (like cyclo) as they are a little more idiot proof (less likely to damage your paint)

Cyclo Pwnz all of j00z it operates @ 1800 RPM or something like that so it's idiot proof (unless you're using sand as a rubbing compound)
