Gregor my polishing pads and belt are turning at about 1750 and I have had no problems. I do however mix the polish into a paste and dip the cabs into it and then apply the polish to the leather with the cab while the pad/belt is spinning. George I have kept an eye out for the synthetic shammy but haven't snagged one yet.......

I will try that but i have some questions. first, I assume that you mix up a very thick paste.  A pic would be nice.  Secondly, how do you let it dry; and how far do you let it dry before you wet it. and when you wet it do you use more paste, or do you spray it with water.

It has been so long since I have done that, but I still have several kinds of polish.  I will try to do it at 1750.  Thanks for your assistance; and thanks in advance for your further assistance.
