Orbital sander

An orbital sander is used to refer to a hand-held electrically or pneumatically powered sanding machine. The particular feature of this machine is the eccentrically mounted, rectangular orbital plate that moves in a circular direction.
The abrasive is attached to the orbital plate either with clamps or it's self-fastening. With the correct choice of abrasive, the orbital sander can be used to sand hard or soft woods, and for anything from coarse to fine sanding. Dust extraction guarantees working with a minimum of sanding dust which can be harmful to health.

Klingspor carries an extensive in-stock selection of self-fastening strips and roll goods.
