The Red Tripoli you will see but the White Diamond and wax you will not. Also make sure they are put on the right buffing wheels because there is a difference.

I go the Beall buffing system and I do like it much better. I did have the PSI one but gave it away to a starting turner.

Good to hear the carnuba is, in fact, invisible. I would have loved the Beall system, but that will have to be a ways down the road. There was a time when I’d go an extra 50% to get the long-range best, but now I have to make some hard choices. I got free shipping on the PSI, so the price differential was more than was apparent at first. Anyway, last night I buffed the Mr. Stubby Stopper, and it was really nice when done. I assume there must have been some buffing compound on the wheels, LOL!! What is a mystery to me is why PSI strongly recommends a Watco finish before buffing. Odd, that is. Perhaps because Watco fills the pores some, and keeps the Tripoli from clogging them? A wild guess.
