I was using my orbital buffer that I use on the car. It's low speed 
enough to keep the danger of heat build-up pretty low. I haven't tried 
getting a finer polish. I need to get one that will allow inspection of 
a finish under full noon sun without visible swirls. If a polish can do 
that, it should be able to take care of my problem.
