          The Freeman P6OPK 7.5 Amp Corded 6 in. Variable Speed Random Orbit Polisher Kit with Auxiliary Handles, Foam Pads, and Canvas Bag is ideal for swirl-free automotive and marine detailing, buffing, and polishing. This heavy duty and durable polisher features a 6 speed regulator to deliver the right amount of power for the task at hand, from 2,000 to 6,400 OPM. A high performance precision built 7.5 Amp electric motor makes it easy to polish, even on tough jobs. Three high quality hex pads are included and feature improved airflow, ensuring a professional finish for DIYers as well as commercial users. These polishing pads securely attach to the 6 in. backing plate with a hook and loop velcro face, and are very simple to swap as needed. A comfort grip handle reduces fatigue and increases control, particularly in combination with one of two auxiliary handles in the kit. A side handle can be attached to either the left or right side of the tool, and a bail / D handle has numerous mounting angles available. The 7.5 Amp Corded 6 in. Variable Speed Random Orbit Polisher Kit also comes with a canvas bag, adjustment tools and replacement motor brushes, and is covered by Freeman's 1 Year Professional Tool Warranty.

          Great random orbit polisher kit. Nice that it comes with 3 different foam pads for different levels of buffing. I picked this up because my other RO Polisher (different vendor) cracked some of its plastic housing. This offers 3 handle options (without handle but a spot to put your hand on the front of the polisher, a U handle on top or a left/right peg). It weights about the same as my previous orbital polisher, so no upgrades on that front. I like to use the U handle as I can swap hands while polishing my truck. Offers an easy to reach variable speed setting on the base of the polisher by where the cable connects. The cable itself is good and long (about 8') making it easy to get around Read More

Offers an easy to reach variable speed setting on the base of the polisher by where the cable connects. The cable itself is good and long (about 8') making it easy to get around cars. The reason I cut 1 star from my review, it came down to 2 small nits. First the bag is too small if you attach either of the handles. Meaning you have to detach them for storage and second the power button is highly odd. The power button pushes forward then down to 'latch' it on. Great that it locks "on", but this method is highly flimsy. I hit it accidentally 3-4 times when polishing my small car. Mostly small annoyances but I wanted to make sure others saw them and made their own mind. In all, for me its a solid polisher and I hope it gives me years of service. Now that I have polished my garage car, my drive way truck is next, but that will be after pollen season. Read Less

          Designed with specific appliances in mind. The wall plug is polarized and the plug into the appliance is a keyed rectangle. Basically a rectangle with a V on one side. for Smaller kitchen appliances like certain blenders. Something less than 7Amps and that has a specific adapter. It’s a nice 6 foot cable that would be a good replacement if you loose or pinch the original. No ground. It’s made of soft flexible plastic casing, and is UL certified. Big benefit. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I have included a few to help those trying to find the “right cable”

          5-star if you don't wear glasses. These are more like 'goggles' than glasses. They hug your face and if you wear corrective lenses these won't work for you at all. That said, they are strong - look nice for safety equipment and won't move. I have a larger head and these are slightly tight but not overly so. Personally I do wear glasses, and there is no way to wear these. I will keep them around as a backup or for my niece or nephew to wear when they stop by and want to help in the woodshop.

          Overall a nice fitting set of gloves. They contour and stretch with the hand. This is very helpful when needing finer degrees of dexterity. I have used these with some woodworking and they work well there. For mechanical work the padding is nice but if you are working with small connections or bolts there is not enough fine dexterity to be helpful. I end up taking them off when I need to work a small bolt with my fingers. Last thing to mention, it says the gloves are “touchscreen friendly”; no. They are not. If lucky, you can get a touch or swipe registered with the pointing finger. No other fingers work at all.

          Saw these and decided to use them to help keep a sweet almond verbena bush in bounds (and keep the dog off of it). I already had 3 stakes in the ground with some twine around them but the twine was aging badly. grabbed these to replace the twine. They are basically a U track with a plastic lock. You lift up on it to expand - just don't go too far or it will slide off the end of the track and you will have to slide them back together again. (Trust me, I have done this 3 times... 3 to a pack and all.)
          Only reason I didn't give them 5 stars; the end clips are not truly universal. I'm using Bamboo which are way smaller than the end clips. In the end I used plant tape to secure the ends, but Read More

I guess the only other thing to mention is I am curious as to how the plastic will hold up to Texas summer sun, time shall tell. Read Less

          The water is pulled from the side of the pump housing. The location of the water inlet goes up about 1.5 inches (maybe 2 inches).
