Model SPEC1300B SERIES II"DETAILER"
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.
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:
- 10% Power increase. Uses a new
1.0 hp Sioux Industrial Air Motor (previous unit was rated
@ .9 hp)
- Uses a new "HD" (Heavy
Duty) #554 Drum. (20% thicker than previous, for improved durability
- Lower RPM with higher torque.
(2600 RPM vs 3200 RPM on previousl SPEC 1300)

(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"

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"

on Alcan® XTRAL 738 Alloy on a bulk fuel tanker,(developed during shipping from China to Malaysia).In this configuration,
the "DETAILER" is able to generate the "heat" required. The "polishing marks" from this operation are then removed with the
"DETAILER" in the "DRUM" configuration or in this case,the SPEC "SA" Industrial polisher.
