I have a halfords polisher thats very similar. Its a waste of time. Better off just doing it by hand. O f you want to venture in to machine polishing something like the Meguiars G220 is the only way to go. Theres a Kestrel poliher thats pretty good AND pretty cheap.

Cheers, That's what I was thinking. I'll stick to the old fashioned way for now and look at a decent polisher in time.

I've got one of these type of things, they aren't much good at polishing, but stick a load of T-Cut or similar on it and they do pull out minor surface scratches faster that doping it by hand, just make sure the mop is nice and wet to avoid burning the paint.
