    Well…. When I was in the Navy stationed in Norfolk, Va I used to have a kit similar to that from Craftsman. I use two craftsman buffers. Yes to wax on and the other to wax off. I find liquid wax is easy to handle so I sue the one buffer strictly for that. Since liquid wax seeps into the rubber wheel and when you try to take wax off it seeps right back out causing more heartache. I do prefer the Brazilian Carnuba paste wax. Also the craftsman kit at that time came with a 5 gallon bucket.

    The results are always fine…but I find that it’s not really that quick with this stuff. Also, I tend to press the towel hard and rub my arm off in order to get this stuff to work.
