Orbital sander

An orbital sander is a hand-held tool used for surface finishing which uses a motor to oscillate an eccentrically arranged flywheel with fitted abrasive paper. The flywheel is usually rectangular and oscillates in a circular motion. (Source: Wikipedia)

Orbital sanders are used for the pre-grinding and finish-grinding of various materials including hard and soft woods as well as varnishes. The abrasive paper is attached to the flywheel either by self-adhesion or a clamping fastener. A dust exhaust system ensures that operation is possible in a way that is environmentally safe and not hazardous to the operator's health. (Source: Wikipedia)

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