    Above is a guide written by me covering all the general points of Dual Action polishing. It is designed as a download and print out and keep guide for anyone wanting a guide to the use of a DA, mainly aimed at beginners but also at anyone who would find it useful.

    Please be aware that these are "Beta Versions" of the guide, there are a few spelling mistakes and I am constantly working to fix these.
