    Hi Marc,maybe consider felt belts instead of the buffer?Iv'e had one too many close calls with mine,and as one forum member has said about machines he didn't care for, " I,m going take it out back and cover it with leaves" Good luck. Lu.

    Excellent, thanks guys! I'll search and see if I use compound with a felt belt or what. Appreciate your help!

    All I can find is that they are 'based in the United States', as per their eBay webpage. Are you certain that the products are made here?

    Yup....he told me that some of the fasteners may be imported, however.
