Griot’s Garage carries some pretty cool stuff, and we’ve purchased car cleaning supplies from them before. But when they sent us notice of their new power tools — specifically the random orbital polisher — we didn’t see anything particularly special about it. Then we noticed that it has a cool feature: a speed control.
Think of it as a polisher designed specifically for car applications. It varies between 4,000 and 7,000 RPM, and it’s got a pretty comfortable-looking handle. It also features an internal fan that cools the backing plate to help prevent heat damage during polishing.
On the downside, it’s a bit expensive at $129, and it’s available only via Griot’s Garage. If any of you have experience with one of these, we’d love to hear about it.
