The SPEC Machine™ hand held pneumatic SERIES II "Detailer" is the perfect polishing tool for work in areas the larger pneumatic drum type polishers can't get into. The air inflated drum, eliminates "edge cutting", "swirl" & "polishing" marks, creating a flawless finish. Best of all, it uses the same high quality pads the 5 inch "Drum" polishers use, but in a 3" X 5" size, (SPEC53C (Cotton) or SPEC53W (wool). As an added bonus, the inflatable drum can be easily removed and replaced with any standard 6 or 8" cotton polishing wheelwith a 5/8 or 1/2 center, (you can "stack" up to 2 or 3 wheels, depending on type). This gives unrivaled versatility and most importantly, the SPEC Machine™ "Detailer" SERIES II produces high torque, at low RPM, allowing increased productivity and results. Important to note: Similar units, available on the market, operate in the over 3000 RPM range and at lower torque outputs. The lower rpm (2600 rpm)with higher torque output SPEC Machines™ "DETAILER", allows for less stress on the polishing pads and parts, and provides more forgiving and exacting operator control.

The SPEC Model 1300B SERIES II "DETAILER" is the perfect tool for engine inlet, vertical stab, brightwork, surface repair and final "spot" polishing operations.

Improvements on the SPEC1300B SERIES II are:

Fits any SPEC™ 1300B Series II "DETAILER" (shown below with SPEC53 Drum on left for size comparison)

Above shows the SPEC™ 1300B Series II "DETAILER" in the "Combi Brush" configuration, with the SPEC32 DRUM attached and a 8"D X 2"W X 3"center 3M "Combi Brush" (Grey ScotchBrite™ w/180 Grit interlaced alu/oxide paper) Above shows the 1300B with all the pads and accessories.

The SPEC™ 1300B Series II "DETAILER" is now more versatile than ever, with the addition of the SPEC32 (3"D X 2"W) inflatable drum. Fits right onto any SPEC™ 1300B SERIES II units.

This new accessory allows the 1300B DETAILER to make use of any 2"wide "Combi Brush or Flapwheel" with a 3" center.

This will allow for very rapid heavy oxidation & scratch removal, surface repair or "surface texturing" (depending on type choosen) on larger surfaces, (primarily bare metals). Affords incredible operator control of material removal in order to prepare the surface for quick "polishing" operations. Much quicker, less costly and far more productive than orbital sanding. (For very large surfaces, please see the SPEC"SD" Drum for use with 8" wide "Combi Brush" or "Flapwheels "on the SPEC™ "SA" or "LA" Industrial polishing units page.

Also, standard, off the shelf Combi "Flapwheels" from other manufacturers fit right onto the SPEC™ 1300B "DETAILER"

This allows for real versality and improved productivity from the "High Torque - Low RPM" SPEC™ 1300B "DETAILER"
