When using a machine orbital polisher -- or even a vacuum, anything with a cord -- drape the cord over your shoulder so to not drag it over your vehicle’s paint. Keep both hands on the machine at all times and always start and stop the machine with the pad on the paint surface. The last thing you need is to blame yourself for a deep wound just because of a simple oversight!
