Not many people are going to need a stainless steel pipe polisher, but the tool just looks really cool.  You can use Fein’s RS 12-70 to grind pipe welds, sand pipes to a satin finish, or polish pipes to a mirror finish and anywhere in between.

The variable-speed sander can drive the belt to speeds up to 22 m/s.  The belts rides on what I’m assuming are spring-loaded arms that allow the belt to flex around the pipe so you can surface all 360° of the pipe in only two passes.

The Pipe Polisher kit includes the pipe sander, 40 belts of various sizes and grits, and five 280-grit fleece belts all packed into a metal tool case. Pricing for the pipe sanding kit starts at $1600.

    For $1600 it had better open it’s own case, do the work I tell it to do, clean itself and put itself away without me having to touch it. Oh, and it also must have a laser.

    We do quite a bit of SS tube/pipe fabrication – but have not yet invested in polishing machinery – preferring to contract that work out. The shop that does it for us – seems to use stationary machinery.

    I dont see the point of this over a dynabrade pad system, which you can even buy concave pads for.

    I was thinking this might be handy for rollcage installs but theres no room to swing this giant tool round the pipework.

    I used to work for a place building high purity stainless steel. This would be a nice item for when larger components have to be welded together because you can’t get them through a door or for long runs done on site. Polishing without the proper equipment is NOT fun.

    A former employer of mine had a funky polishing system with belts that were actually strips whose ends locked together.

    As long as you had a little clearance behind the pipe you were polishing you could thread the belt behind the pipe, hook it up to the machine and polish the backside of the pipe.

    I’m sorry, I can’t remember the name and never used it myself. Anybody heard of it?
