A Little Work Horse

I recently picked up a Chicago Pneumatics CP7200 mini orbital sander kit. I’ve been looking for a setup like this for a while. It fills a need I have for a compact sander that I can use for spot paint repair and buffing fenders and side covers. I jury rigged a system that I used with my D/A that worked pretty good for my needs. But this little baby blows it away and allows me a level of control that I did not have with my D/A or Makita buffer.

I also purchased an 3M adaptor kit so I can utilize 3M’s Roloc system of mini disc abrasives with the 7200. This will make this about the most versatile tool I have in my arsenal. All this utility for right around a C note, can’t hardly beat that one if you tried.
The Specs for this little piece are as follows:
•Compact and lightweight for easy access in tight areas
•Rubber molded palm grip for added comfort
•Adjustable power regulator
•Two finger throttle for easier control and less fatigue
•Silenced handle exhaust directs air away from work area
Kit includes: mini random orbital sander plus (1) 2' and 3' backing pads, (10) 2' 320, 400 and 600 grit sand paper, (10) 3' 300 (10) 3' 320, 400 and 600 grit sand paper and spindle key packed in a heavy duty carrying case.

If your in the market for a mini buffer/sander/ polisher/grinder the Chicago Pneumatics CP7200 may just be the ticket you’ve been looking for. I’m starting the tear down of the XT motor next week, so I should have a little more to write about.

Till Next Time...........................
