The GEM 11" sander drastically reduces labor by more than half. This heavy duty machine runs at 1700 "orbits" per minute without the possibility of creating the swirl marks associated with high-speed rotary buffers. Smooth, hand-polish action safeguards against surface damage. GEM's counter weight system is well balanced and smooth running, so you can guide the sander over the surface and let the 18 lbs. of weight do the work for you.
GEM's orbital action sands, polishes and finishes with a motion like that of the human hand! It sands equally well and uniformly on solid surface and wood products. The GEM Orbital comes with a Kling-On (Hook and Loop) fastening system for use with standard discs, non-woven or buff with the corresponding backing.
This is the ideal sander for abrading larger surfaces like Solid surface (i.e. Corian), wood slabs, sheet material, veneered panels and any other applications where a small sander just won't get it done.
Sander comes with the 11" Hook & Loop Drive Pad.
