 Anyone know anything about bench buffers?

I have a hobby restoring old pinball machines and need a bench mount buffer to polish mostly chrome, brass or stainless steel (but maybe an occasional piece of plastic). I'm looking at a Baldor 3/4 hp buffer and have a choice of 1800 or 3600 rpm. What are the reasons to choose one speed over the other? I understand the 3600 might polish a little faster, but the object being polished will probably get hotter and be harder to control. Anyone here have knowledge about these things?

Baldor is definitely the best of the best as far as motors goes. I could be wrong on this, but aren't the slower RPM motors larger and heavier than the 'high' RPM motors? This could make for a longer lasting better unit, if its true. Either should work though.

Link below is to an automotive restoration supply company who has everything you never wanted for buffers and buffing supplies. Wheels, compounds, cleaners, etc.

Baldor had me as a life customer five seconds after I turned on my Baldor bench grinder. It was so smooth and quiet it just oozed quality. You could hardly tell it was running.

Thanks for the link, AV8R. Eastwood has a two speed buffer but it's $50 more than the Baldor. I wonder if there's a reasonably priced speed control that will work on these. It would be great to get the 3600 rpm and throttle it down as needed. Maybe that's easier said than done.
