This heavy duty machine runs at 1700 “orbits” per minute without the possibility of creating the swirl marks associated with high-speed buffers. Smooth, hand-polishing 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 16 lbs. of weight do the work for you. Sands, polishes and finishes.

This option also includes a dust collection shroud which is pre-assembled with the Sander. It operates with a standard shop vacuum.
The shroud’s outlet pipe is 1-1/2″. However, GEM provides an adapter with every shipment for those whose shop vacuum uses 1-1/4″ hose.
Fabricators can now feel comfortable taking the GEM Sander “mobile” for on site installs and repairs.
