To increase operator precision and help eliminate rework, these tools include a variable speed control feature. Built with operator comfort in mind, our line of 3M™ Disc Sanders have a lightweight, compact design and a 97-degree head that allows for greater wrist comfort and control during use. They also include a comfortable full coverage composite grip that absorbs vibration and moderates cold temperatures caused by air flow. In addition, the motor is precision balanced to ensure smoother and quieter operation over that of competitive sanders.

The necessary air power supply and hose are sold separately. When used with the collet chuck the sander may also function as a die grinder for use with specialty abrasives such as cross buffs cartridge rolls. Our 3M™ Roloc™ TR system was designed to provide a quick, secure attachment for products ranging in diameter from 1 to 4 inches. Roloc disc pads come in various densities or hardness levels depending on the requirements of the application. The hardness ranges from extra hard to soft, where the rule of thumb is the coarser the abrasive, the harder the disc pad one should use, which promotes longer life of the product. The disc pad (also called a backup pad) interlocks with the sanding disc or bristle disc and is attached to the disc sander. This simple assembly provides a secure attachment that is reliable even when working at high speeds. Combining a Roloc abrasive disc with a Roloc disc pad provides high-quality, consistent results.
