As you can see in this wonderfully versatile tool from Festool, a sander can be more than a basic tool for sanding things - it can also be a finishing center. Previous Rotex sanders have been able to adjust from heavy rotary sanding to fine random orbital sanding. This sander takes sanding to a new dimension. In addition to the coarse and fine settings, with one more flip of the switch the Rotex RO 90 DX converts from a circular pad to a triangular delta pad in seconds (no tools required). The triangular pad is offset from the main unit so that you can reach into corners and tight crevices. The gear driven orbit gnaws through the toughest materials and finishes. The lightweight, compact format eliminates fatigue. The Rotex 90 sander with its detail DX head uses the same triangular shaped sandpaper that fits the DX 90 detail sander.
The sander comes with an edge guard and has a built in brake to quickly stop the pad from scarring your work once you turn it off.
A sander like the RO 90, with it�s aggressive rotary action will give you very quick sanding results but by switching from sand paper to polishing pads the rotary action allows you to do mirror polishing of just about anything. A huge range of polishing accessories are available for the Rotex 90.
