    Re: Frequently Asked Questions - UDOS RANDOM ORBIT POLISHER

    Thanks Mike! Some good info so far, and hopefully soon LC will release more specifics such as orbit stroke lengths (assuming 8, 12, 15 and 21), motor power, machine weight, OPM, number of speeds, where it's made, does it come with 5" and 6" plates standard, etc.

    Four different orbit stroke lengths to choose from - no solid answer as to what they are? I was told 8mm to 21mm but nothing in-between.

    Everyone is guessing the there two options will be the 12mm and 15mm
