The tedious-work TERMINATOR.

The Rupes LD30 Air-Powered 30mm De-Nibber is an orbital-action sander. The motion it creates is similar to what your hand might create while drawing a circle, or scrubbing using a circular motion. This tiny machine makes short work of dirt nibs, paint sags & runs, and can level blobs of touch-up paint with ease.  

Tiny orbit (1.5mm ø) = concentrated sanding power.
Precise sanding is no problem for the orbit-action LD30!  Its backing plate moves so minutely, that you'd be hard pressed to mimic its motion using a handheld de-nibber (the LD30 is not a random orbital machine). Delivers a top speed of 7,500 orbits per minute (125 orbits per second), making short work of anything that gets in its way.

Use with PSA or Velcro-style sanding rosettes.
The Rupes LD30 is supplied with both vinyl and hook-style backing plates, allowing you to use any type of sanding disc or rosette you choose. We offer several grades of PSA (Peel and Stick Adhesive) sanding rosettes. Includes a hook & loop interface pad, which allows for improved contour sanding on curved surfaces.

Polish tight, small, or very confined areas.
Although not designed as a polisher, the Rupes LD30 can be successfully used to polish very small parts & areas (my friend Richard Lin regularly uses his LD30 to polish automotive paint & trim). A variety of buffing pads can be found here.
