    Re: Any plans for Flex compact positive-drive orbital polisher?

    Tony, I own a Festool RO90DX. The DA offset is smaller than normal. Its not 8mm. I think it is 5mm, maybe even 3mm. So it acts more like a jiggling rotary. So the rotary PRM and the DA OPM are a little amped up to compensate. It also makes it easier to handle which is what you need on these small surffaces. I use this thing mainly on bumpers. This tool and anything Festool is built to last. Every bit as tough as a Flex tool. (I have had to get 2 different Flex tools serviced in the past)

  2. Thanks Diner thanked for this post

    That one is a 3mm stroke, per their site.

    The other option, is Meg's little DA (Drill Activated) attachment that is direct drive and works with 3" pads. It can be quite effective with a good drill.
