Default What electric pint BUFFER do you recommend?

ADDED: Oops! The title should read "paint", not pint! Fat typing fingers at work there.
For almost 35 years I have been using a pneumatic buffer connected to my air medium-high capacity compressor when I buff out my paint jobs. I have gone through three air compressors in this time, mostly by taxing them with hours on end of buffing. The compressor I have now just can't keep up anymore and I end up spending more time waiting for the pressure to build up to continue than I actually spend buffing. Time to change to an electric buffer.
I don't mean the puny kind that you buff wax and polish with. These run way too slowly to do any good. I tried that and was disappointed. I need a good, powerful electric buffer that was designed with the speed and stamina to buff out acrylic enamel type paint. So, for you guys who do this on a more than occasional basis, which buffer do you recommend? I have at least three Model A and T cars to buff out (in pieces) before Christmas.
Thanks in advance.
