Mothers does not recommend our 05140 PowerBall on painted surfaces. We offer 05147 PowerBall 4Paint, which is of a different foam and made for use on painted surfaces. In addition, we recommend the use of a cordless drill due to its lower torque limits. Please use the right tool, in the right manner, for your needs.

Bought the Mini PowerBall to do the aluminum wheels on my motorcycle after I tried the regular PowerBall and found it WAY too big to get into all the areas I needed to. Even the Mini was difficult to get into some areas. I wish Mother's would make a Micro or Nano version.

The ball worked well with the Billet Polish to get a mirror shine in most areas. However, I would caution you to take your time and use only light to light-medium pressure on the ball because it didn't take too long before it began to tear apart on the inner folds and start thumping around on the surface, making it useless. I had to buy another in order to finish the job and it was starting to tear by the time I was done. Not very cost-effective. BTW, I have used cotton buffing wheels with the compound bars and the like in the past in order to buff various metals and had already used that method here before using the Mini PowerBall and Billet Polish for the final step in the process. So I wasn't trying to grind away at a rough, dull surface with this PowerBall, just bringing up the shine to as close to chrome as possible.

I worked at the detailing department at a car wash and know something about buffers. This thing works *great* on paint, just like a commercial grade buffer wheel. If you have experience with a regular buffer wheel, this is an easy adaptation. It's small enough to handle easily, but big enough to do a fairly quick job.

I use a corded drill for doing a large vehicle. Unless your cordless has brand new batteries, they may run out. But you will save money by not having to buy a buffing tool. 2 of these babies (1 to polish, 1 to wax) and a good drill is all you will ever need. They clean up by soaking in dish soap solution for an hour or two (use enough soap). I definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants a good looking car and wants to save about $100 on equipment!

I was a little skeptical about this at ordering, but it is great! The first thing i tried it on was my 2001 Nissan headlight covers (they were opaque from sun and age). With a mild polish made for cleaning these lenses it took about 10 seconds. Without the PowerBall it takes some elbow scrubbing time. They shine almost like new.

I have not used it yet on my aluminum wheels yet, but i really think it will polish almost any metal quickly.

i saw on youtube that these are good to quickly clean your bathtub and floor. it worked for that purpose. the sponge was flexible enough to get in the corners of the shelves for the shampoo and stuff.

The only reason this doesn't receive five stars is because it can be used in only one direction. This isn't a problem, yet, but over time, it's going to wear on one side of the tool than the other. Additionally, you may want to use a different direction on your drill, the typical tool in which to mount this polishing ball, and you can't use reverse on a drill with this polishing ball.

Still, with this, about a teaspoon of plastic scratch remover (used on pinball machine playfields to polish them) and 10 minutes of prep/cleanup per headlight, this little ball got the somewhat cloudy headlight lenses on my wife's car back to crystal clear. Sure, I could have done the same thing with 1,500 and 2,000 grit sandpaper, which I have, but this was much quicker, not messy, and took almost no effort.

Now...to polish the rather large aluminum wheels on our diesel-pusher motorhome. At least this will make it less of a chore.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to clean. It's almost spongy in its texture.
